Jockstrap’s intentionally crude name stood in stark contrast to their strange but sophisticated sounds, with Ellery’s diaphanous songwriting and gentle vocals disrupted by Skye’s harsh, unpredictable production. After releasing a handful of music independently, Jockstrap signed on with Warp for the release of their 2020 EP Wicked City.
Their EP, Love Is the Key to the City, was released in 2018 and quickly drew attention from press, fans, and established artists all enamored with the duo’s beguiling style. In November of 2018, they contributed to Dean Blunt’s Soul on Fire EP alongside Mica Levi and A$AP Rocky. Buzz continued to grow around the duo and they signed on with experimental electronic label Warp in 2020. In advance of their second EP, Wicked City, Jockstrap released singles “Acid” and “The City.” The EP was released in early June of that year.Buy Tickets
