Jack Garratt - EP Launch Review
Brought to you by PEERLESS // peerlessmusic.tumblr.com
After selling out his first date in a matter of minutes, I was extremely happy to get my hands on a pair of tickets for his second night at The Waiting Room.Jack Garratt, who is one of the most skilled musicians on the scene, has emerged fresh and fierce to release his EP ‘Remnants’. With single ‘Worry’ smashing it on every platform, his live performance is a treat in itself.
Playing piano like a jazz pro, he reveals juicy progressions amidst a delicate touch and unexpected directions to his music. Yet the next minute Garratt picked up his electric guitar to charm us with gutty, gritty emotion. Combining this with sample pad of delights, Jack craft-fully blends the multitude of parts, creating a stunning performance, enhancing his already brilliant songs.
Oh, and let’s not forget the voice. Think astonishingly high, yet crunchy and rugged. Think powerfully emotive, yet evoking and tantalising.
Jack Garratt’s launch was a performance to remember, and I am excited for the journey this artist is embarking on.
