Within the city of Pennsylvanian city of Pittsburgh, you will find the genre-bending three piece known as Jack Swing, who have collectively been releasing music since their debut single, titled ‘A Reminder’, in 2016.
From the very get-go, it was clear that Jack Swing had the ambition to throw in all of the genres that influence them together in one pot. These include the likes of blues, funk, rock, and indie. As a result, the tunes that Jack Swing release all feel like ones that can be easily accessed by fans of various genres, whilst all having a certain quality that helps them to stand out.
As of now, Jack Swing have concluded their third project cycle, with the release of their newest EP, Get What’s Mine For You. And despite having the least amount of tracks out of the three EP’s they have released so far, the overall run-time of this project still does a good job to settle within the 10-20 minute mark that all three EP’s share. And besides, Get What’s Mine For You definitely feels like more of a quality over quantity project, as it carries with it some of the most finely-tuned and complete-sounding showcases of Jack Swing’s unique style combination to date.
Leading this EP, is the self-titled tune, that masterfully does its job of representing what the EP, as well as the band, is all about. And while doing so, it is a marvellously tasty jam, with a very generous amount of groove, as well as an energetic and upbeat presence.
Following up from the title track, we have the previously teased ‘Whether I Do’, which retains an upbeat rhythm, whilst adopting a more warm and indulgent atmosphere in its melody. With the first track arguably being the most upbeat, and the final track being the most slow and slinky, ‘Whether I Do’ feels like a perfect middle-ground.
Speaking of that final track, we close off this EP with ‘Meet You There’, which is another brand new tune. And as previously mentioned, its slow and slinky build allows it to arguably the easiest track for listeners to get lost in, and truly indulge in this bluesy soundscape.
The main attribute that really helps tie this EP together would have to be the almost live feel that it has. It feels as if we are listening to this band at our local venue, as opposed to through our headphones, and that is a truly special quality.
All-in-all, Get What’s Mine For You is a compact yet largely fulfilling musical experience that does an excellent job of rounding up the group’s creative processes in 2020.INDIE TOP 39
