“keep your spirit free” is the latest single from Brooklyn-based project JEWELRY. Playful organs and a warming bass line concoct a sun-shining ’70s nostalgia.
Lyrics refer to “the weight of the world,” being on your shoulders and a doomed youth, expressing a yearning to persevere and “keep your spirit free,” in the midst of tumult. Dazed backing vocals and expressive mid-point guitars add beautifully to the production, which enamors in its aptly free-flowing glow. “keep your spirit free” is a memorable, uplifting burst of mellow sunshine from JEWELRY.
This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2023’ Spotify playlist.
