We’re back with another edition of This Is Our Jam, a midweek mix of our favorite recent tracks. This week, we’re kicking things off with a video premiere from folk-rock singer Jillian Edwards, a raw pop gem from VÉRITÉ, and a buzzy song from Leeds’ Adult Jazz. Next up, is a sweet, undefinable dance jam from SOPHIE, and finally we’re taking it down a notch with a folk-influenced new jam from Vance Joy.
Jillian Edwards
“Gotta Have You”
We’re really feeling this Jillian Edwards indie-folk tune with her sweet, personal vocals, and we’re excited to premiere the video for it. “Gotta Have You” in video form is very reflective of the song: simple, gorgeous, and honest — focusing solely on Edwards and her guitar. We’ve gotta say it stands out as one of our favorites from her record Daydream. You can also catch her on the road this September.
Vance Joy
“Mess Is Mine”
Vance Joy is one of our new favorite folk-rock singers that falls somewhere in between Bon Iver and Hozier. “Mess Is Mine” is a gorgeous example of Joy’s storytelling ability and penchant for simplistic, layered instrumentation. If this song is anything like what’s to come on his debut full-length due September 9, we’re pretty sure his name is going to be everywhere.
