Joe Hertz is continuing his rise since September’s How It Feels with his latest single, “Simple”. This tune features the glossy vocals of JONES, whose syrupy voice flows flawlessly over Hertz’ production. To my ears, the beauty of this song is Hertz’ ability to stay out of the way of the vocals, but still get the audience dancing. You’ll be singing the hook from the chorus for days, but after a handful of listens you’ll also notice the understated complexity and sophistication of the production. House, R&B, and pop influences come together artfully in this gem of a tune.
If you’re looking for a breath of fresh air (especially within our crazy world), JONES is as refreshing as they come. “Melt” is the London artist’s first track off of her forthcoming debut album, New Skin. There’s nothing complicated about “Melt”, it truly just has a beauty to it that comes so easily. Within seconds it’ll have you feeling good and forgetting your worries, because it’s just that great of a pop song. It’s light, it’s sweet, and it has a way of reeling you in without even trying. If you’re feeling down and need a pick me up, JONES is to the rescue. Check out “Melt” below and let it sooth your soul in no time.
