Reckless Jacks – “Blossom”


Presently based in London, Reckless Jacks is a solo project with eclectic appeal. New track “Blossom” exudes a sound reminiscent of ’90s and ’00s alternative. The lead vocal tone is yearning with some nasally angst, comparable to Placebo’s Brian Molko. The verses do well in building intensity each to the brooding chorus via ruminating vocals and simmering rhythms, with a nice clap-laden bridge past the two-minute mark, adding enjoyable variation. The “we will blossom,” chorus sticks easily. “Blossom” is a rousing effort from Reckless Jacks, who will be releasing another track in the coming months as well.

The artist behind the project, Matt, has this to say about the track: “We blossom throughout our journey as individuals to achieve goals in life through it, and make things happen. The song can also be interpreted as the challenge of a musician evolving in the music industry.”

“Blossom” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2019’ Spotify playlist.
