Sharp, sincere and catchy. Amsterdam-based band Jagd makes loud indie based on heavy but playful basslines, sharp and energetic guitars, pumping drums, up front vocals and the occasional synthesizer. "Loud, danceable and lyrically interesting: Jagd is refreshing." (3voor12 Gelderland)
After a year of writing and rehearsing, Jagd presented itself to the public on the 13th of November 2015 in a sold-out Winston Kingdom, with a single which was praised by the press for being "original and energetic, including a ballsy female vocalist who reminds me of Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother" (Zinesters). Debut song ’Ritalin’ scored fourth place in the Dutch Indie Chart Top 100 of 2015. 2016 started out just as great, with being voted best band by both the audience and a professional jury at Q’s best, the band competition by Q-Factory. The jury praised Jagd as "a close-knit band with great energy and adventurous and varied songs. They really got the crowd going. They have attitude, a great presentation and good suspense. They were convincing. It just hit the mark straight away." On the 10th of September Jagd released their first EP 'Parlay', which is mixed by Brattwell Recordings (Cheatahs, The Vaccines) on the main stage of the Sugar Factory. Subsequently, Jagd won the Amsterdamse Popprijs on the 10th of december 2016, where the jury was impressed and spoke of "international potential".
Jagd built a reputation as being an intense live act. 3voor12 Den Haag was pleasantly surprised by "a female vocalist with a voice that easily matches the (extremely tight) band." 3voor12 Gelderland added that "Singer Nanne is charismatic, entertaining and has a great voice. [...] Loud, danceable and lyrically interesting: Jagd is refreshing."
