CRAZY - JACOB REDDY

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM JACOB REDDY

‘Crazy’ is the newest single from Blackburn-based Jacob Reddy, who has made a big impression on the North-West music scene.

Starting off as a busker on the streets and doing a mammoth tour of doing so, he turned heads and rightly so.

Branded as ‘One to Watch 2024’ by XS Manchester, it’s difficult not to agree with him. His unique vocals, paired with brilliant lyrics are impressive for someone so young.

Jacob describes his style as ‘GritPop’ and I’m inclined to agree.

‘Crazy’ is a brilliant mix of indie, rock with a hint of pop, the vocals are almost instant and are complimented by a soft backing track, but with a distinctive drum beat, which works. The lyrics sound like they roll off the tongue and is a generally enjoyable listen, with an impressive range of vocals.

The backing track is switched between soft and little bit grittier, which, in my opinion, is difficult to achieve well. It’s a refreshing take on an Indie track, very well put together, flows very well and has a lot of potential.

The only thing I think it’s missing is a more backing vocals, even brief, to really push out Jacob’s brilliant voice. Overall a powerful tune, which would get a crowd going and impressive range, top stuff!
