Taking inspiration from the likes of Hüsker Dü, Jawbreaker, Descendents, Alkaline Trio, Tsunami Bomb, Pretty Girls Make Graves, and others, The Jacklights play energetic, hook-driven punk/pop-punk with thoughtful lyrics and a 90s alt rock influence. 

Launched in January 2020, the band released their self-titled debut EP in October of the same year, followed by the single, "Winter," in 2021, garnering local media attention. Their second EP,  "Drift," was released via Red on Red Records in July 2021. In August 2021, The Jacklights were nominated for Punk Rock Act of the Year in the New England Music Awards.
