US duo Jasper and Jade release their third single “Close”.
Atlanta-based singer-songwriter duo Jasper and Jade stake their claim where smart, affecting lyrics collide with the sonic hallmarks of millennial pop-rock and crossover country. “Close”, their latest and third release, is typical of this outlook.
Marked by anthemic harmonies, driving drum beats, and forthright guitar riffs, their music is a smoky-sweet concoction with a hint of bubblegrunge and a whole lot of heart.
In the recording studio, J + J’s Katie Snyder and Anna Packer earned themselves the nickname ‘the sweet and the meat’ for their complementary vocal styles: Katie’s husky, honeyed voice tangles with Anna’s pleading powerhouse pipes for a signature sound that’s polished—but with patina.
The band’s poetic, introspective lyrics are refreshingly earnest, while their penchant for well-crafted hooks and irresistible choruses squarely deliver on pop music’s promise to sweep listeners away.
