It is a wonderful feeling when you are aimlessly browsing Soundcloud and after just a few bars you have already found your next favourite track. And that is exactly what happened when I came across jacup (Twitter/Instagram), who has a profile with zero information, but two utterly stunning singles.
A couple of months ago, he uploaded the understated ur love, which plays around with little more than skitterish percussion, heavily reverbed vocals, and a few chords to create a song of infatuation and a broken heart.
This was then followed up with the sumptuous i found you, that reminds me a little of Conner Youngblood‘s feedback and vocal layering, but stands in its own right as an utterly perfect, distorted love song.
I spent too much time falling down
I wanna love but I don’t know how
Pretty face only seen through my phone
I guess she thinks that I like being alone
