Jordan Max - War
This review was originally published in July of 2018.
I would call this apocalyptic funk-pop in the style of Jamie Lidell. The piano and the vocal together create the melancholic canvas, and that slow 6/8 tears it up, with a groove and subtle swing that brings D'Angelo to mind.
The piano has a beautiful withered sound to it, the production is layered with lots of space and time to let the notes crumble. The kick drum sounds deep and mysterious; when the mix kicks in fully for a moment it is much like the rumblings of a rock army.
Jordan Max is a singer-songwriter from the UK. The single-shot video was directed by Hector Dockrill.
