Jamie Johnson – “She’s Mine”
“She’s Mine” is a captivating piece of songwriting from Jamie Johnson, an artist based in London. An emotive, elegant vocal presence — tonally reminiscent of The Weeknd — leads over a rainy-day bass presence, with careful doses of guitars and keys adding to the feel. “She’s mine,” Johnson repeats before stomping percussion and more aggressive guitars enter past the one-minute mark, coinciding with a more raucous, blues-tinged vocal presence. The track’s development from serenely developmental beginnings into a rocking fervency is commendable and cohesively accomplished.
“I tried to dig into some of the uglier elements that exist within relationships,” Johnson says of the track. “The song is all about that possessive feeling that can linger beneath the surface when you’re with someone that you like, but maybe don’t completely trust.”
“She’s Mine” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of June 2019’ Spotify playlist.
