“NORMAL TENSION” by Jackson Vincent

Jackson Vincent is an indie folk artist from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He often experiments with dichotomies such as earthy fuzz-driven guitars and heavily processed vocal effects. Jackson has dubbed his gloomy sound as 'music for ghosts;" a new musical styling combining elements of folk, grunge, alternative, and lo-fi genres among others.

"It can get dark and surreal at times, but it's a vibe that we've all found ourselves stuck in. It's a type of moody tune that would play as a ghost drifts across planes, somehow both earthy and otherworldly," says Jackson. His music often discusses themes of love, loss, self-discovery, and permanence; typically inspired by or loosely based on events in his own life.

In a strange way this six track EP "NORMAL TENSION" makes you want to get up and dance, it’s groovy yet moody, gives you the chance to shake your hips and bump a little bit. This folk and lofi tracks are quickly going to be something you add to your daily playlist, EP made for everyone. I felt connected to the subtle vocals, and pensive delivery throughout.
