Jack Garratt is a name you’re going to be hearing a lot of the remainder of the year and into next. The young melody-maker’s impassioned vocals and endearing presence are suited well for today’s pop climate, evident in one of this summer’s more poignant cuts, the forever youthful “Weathered.” But it’s an electro-revamp of the slow burner that has me all hot and bothered.
Through airy synths and an intensifying bassline Atlanta duo Halogen do a fantastic job of creating an entirely new experience, one that feels like an organic, original mix. It’s as if Garratt’s warmhearted harmonies were tailor-made for the bass-heavy twists and turns. Spin this one, a lot. You won’t regret it. And for U.S. fans, you can find Jack on tour right now.
