It starts with an ancient upright piano, 140 years old passed down from generation to generation. It stood in the front room when we were children and I would sit on the music stool slowly caressing the keys whilst my foot permanently pressed the piano’s sustain pedal, letting its rich sound envelop me – my own private cathedral.
Jim Jam’s newest song has just dropped and it’s called “Troubled Soul”. Dark around the edges, the song holds light within the gentle vocals and the flowing guitar melodies, a story of feeling one of those rare glimmers of hope as a person suffering from depression. And it feels so good!
The EP is a short and delightful journey into the depth of your own emotions, sounding like the nights the artist has spent awake. Soothing and understanding music for all of us night-owls sometimes getting trapped in our own thoughts.
Written as a reminder that the strongest of us can break under the constant load of stress and distrust, “Columns” is a warning to take care of yourself and a companion to those lost and alone. Heavy and epic together with soft and quiet, it’s a song inspiring to pour out those huge emotions, for it makes us feel lighter and see the light after.
Cute, youthful and loaded with chill indie pop vibes, “Sweet Perfection” is both a perfect contender for the song of summer, and a sweet memory of falling in love and feeling the flutter in your chest whenever that special someone appeared outside.
