"While The Jack Moves‘ ill name might lead some to believe they are a rap group, that’s far from the case. Comprised of vocalist and guitarist Zee Desmondes and musician Teddy Powell, the Newark, New Jersey-based duo linked up via skateboarding in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Upon crossing each other’s path and hanging out, they quickly realized there was a mutual affinity for funk and soul of the ’70s and ’80s, which led them to form a group dedicated to that sound.
Now, Mass Appeal is presenting The Jack Moves’ first single and corresponding music video, “Doublin’ Down,” which is set to appear on their debut album, releasing via Wax Poetics records. The song is reminiscent of the cinematic soul found on the soundtrack of blaxploitation films like “Willie Dynamite,” mixed with vocal influences of Jay Kay from Jamiroquai."
