Seddy – “dear, jacob”


A track from Seddy‘s new album alone w you, “dear, jacob” casts an anesthetic feeling with its weary vocals and patient guitar twangs. The Los Angeles-based artist projects a convincing feeling of yearning initially, reflecting on smiles within old photographs and a relationship that slowly went astray, drifting like a ship without an anchor until it sinks entirely. The ensuing, devastating chorus asks “Jacob” if he will still remember their past love when they’re 40, and pining for days gone by.

The track’s melancholic vocal tone and steady guitar twangs assemble beautifully amidst the tale of lengthened yearning, exposing a vulnerability that compels amidst the strong melodic pull of the atmospheric guitars and emotive vocals. “dear, jacob” is one of many highlights throughout alone w you.
