Irish talent Jay FM adds another chapter to his growing musical contribution to our stable, courtesy of a glorious deep house EP. His intricate offerings always reach great emotional depths. His latest, the "Timeless" EP, is no exception, as it offers a textured backdrop to a pensive spring walk.
The gush of a gong signals the beginning of "Timeless" and is soon followed by a pumping bass. Delicate percussive hits join the fray, just as a breakdown sheds these layers, offering a few fleeting moments of a truly blissful soundscape. The returning bass offers an energetic groove that is balanced by sweeping chords and soft vocals, allowing us to lay back and experience the lush and romantic composition unfold.
In "Come," airy vocals swirl behind the main melodic motifs of the track, which includes an impressionistic piano score; the vocals retain the subtlety of a deep exhale, carrying a sweeping array of emotions as they gently repeat "come." As the song progresses, the piano melodies reverberate with the sensual coolness of an evening breeze. Gently pulsating percussion emulates the consistent beat of a heart, giving life to this timeless composition.
This song gets me right in the feels. I can never think of a word to describe this feeling that certain songs and chord progressions give me, but this definitely gives me that feeling. I Always just want to put on a pair of nice headphone and bop my head to the lovely sounds of Shingo. Maddie Farnsworth
