With some of pretty influential names backing Tobia Jesso Jr as a talent to watch, I can imaging that he might be feeling some pressure. Actually, based on the soft, mellow, swooping and gentle musicality that he produces, it seems that Tobias is too chilled a guy to feel any stress at all. He exudes a very, very laid back vibe- even though this song is one of loss, betrayal and heartbreak. It feels very much like he is the perfect blend of the open-hearted Canadian (he’s from Vancouver eh), blended with some Californian wide-eyed-hippyness (he was based in LA for several years) giving his approach that mellow 70’s edge.
Man and piano making music in perfect sweet, angst-free union, and making our Monday super chilled for a change (for which we thank you whole-heartedly Tobias). Watch out for his debut album, Goon, dropping middle of this month.
