Jacob McCaslin – “Grilled Cheese”


Smooth and soulful, “Grilled Cheese” is a memorable track from Swedish-born artist and producer Jacob McCaslin. Suave falsetto vocals and tender guitar licks concoct a seductive feel to start, as lyrics relay the seductiveness of a romantic night in (and some grilled cheese doesn’t hurt). “Girl I know it’s cheesy, but loving you is easy,” McCaslin croons, the tongue-in-cheek confidence playing well amidst the funky soulful aesthetic. A melodic shift past the mid-point charms, the key-laden glistening scaling things back a bit prior to the delectable guitar emphasis. “Grilled Cheese” plays with delicious satisfaction.

“Grilled Cheese” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2021’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Soul.
