The Inconsistent Jukebox has announced the forthcoming release of a new single ‘Bold Ego Fledgling’, which features vocals by Las Vegas-based Ang Kerfoot, via UK indie label Supersonic Media. The track gives way to the primal urges of TIJ creator Barry Snaith as he gives the mic to Kerfoot empowering her to represent the music with her unmistakable style and flare. Droning yet memorable and captivating by design, “Bold Ego Fledgling” gives credence to the solid foundation that is the new indie.
Featuring artwork contributed by Eric Lacombe and musical contributions by Eco Rem and Hungarian jaw harp maestro Konokunok,‘Bold Fledgling Ego’ also features four remixes by Liz Cirelli, David Augustin, Richard Brown and Born2Groove. The single releases August 5 and can be pre-ordered HERE.
About The Inconsistent Jukebox
The Inconsistent Jukebox is the solo project of Barry Snaith. This is the Pandora’s Box giving rise to his work with incredible artists from all over the world and engaged in various creative genres – music, paint, surrealist human art, motion graphics, dance, and video.
As a guitarist, Snaith has toured, gigged and recorded with the likes of The Ramones, Chrissie Hynde, Johnny Thunders, and David Johannsen. As a solo artist, he writes and produces soundscapes that have been used in fashion shows, the UK’s first ever digital fiction installation and much more.
His most recent collaboration, released in June via German boutique label Emerald & Doreen Recordings, is the ‘Radio Boom’ single with Jonathan L, internationally known for decades as a radio show presenter and 2015 Euro DJ Personality of the Year award.
Almost impossible to slot into a neat little ‘genre’ box, it’s fair to say that ‘Bold Ego Fledgling’ dishes up a stunning slab of gritty idiosyncratic electro rock, combining distorted glitchy guitars with Kerfoot’s deadpan spoken word turned vocals.
The video for ‘Bold Ego Fledgling’ was choreographed by Parris Goebel, who has worked with artists including Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj and iKON, among others.
Featuring Goebel’s ReQuest Dance Crew, this video was shot in Auckland, Seoul, L.A., Las Vegas, Budapest and Manchester. An 8-time gold medal winner at Hip Hop International’s World Hip Hop Dance Championship, she was named 2014 Female Choreographer of the Year at the World of Dance Awards in Los Angeles.
The Devil Has the Best Tuna says this video “is one of the best you’ll see this year”. Here edgy flushed guitars mix with impeccable production, vocals, and choreography, with the video rather transfixing with its dark, edgy and spellbinding dance progression and visuals.

“Melds gritty electo-rock grind with a more fluid hip-hop beat, marching forward with a forceful sonic power. Cycling, sharp electric guitar jags punctuate the pulsing electronic sparks and supple, hip-hop-styled rhythm… providing shining, hopeful moments amid the darker sonic distortion”

“A stunning slab of gritty, grimy industrial electro reminiscent of the KLF at their idiosyncratic best… One of the best indie dance crossovers since Loaded and is a strong contender for the Devil’s top tracks of 2016 and there’s still 9 months to go”
