About The True Jacqueline
The True Jacqueline is a three-piece indie art rock/noise pop/shoegaze band with alluring vocal harmonies, fuzzed-out guitar and bass, and energetic drumming. Since 2010 “Jackie” has embraced the indie rock tradition of their home town of Northampton, Massachusetts, featuring members Noah Stevralia (vocals, guitar), Kate Niemczyk (vocals, bass) and Brian DiPippo (drums, vocals).
The band deftly fuses catchy hooks in the guitar, bass, and vocals with gritty timbres and lush noise. George Lenker of The Republican (MassLive.com) said, “The True Jacqueline is maybe my favorite band to come along in years. A combination of twee pop and angular indie rock, employing quirky but accessible chord changes, and embedded in a foundation of solid, if not flashy, musicianship makes the band hard to beat to my ears.”
The True Jacqueline have shared the stage with many bands including The War On Drugs, Bishop Allen, and Hilly Eye. In 2010 the band released its debut full-length album Nice Bird and undertook a successful tour of the midwestern United States with Orca Age (Brooklyn, NY). In 2011 the group toured the south-eastern states with Friends of Yours (Northampton, MA) in support of their most recent endeavor, the Things Under Water EP, which was recorded with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Chelsea Light Moving).
