What is it about Jess' music that just makes me feel better?
New single Love Don't Give A Damn opens with a catchy beat even though the lyrics are more sullen and some might say very true.
Another great song highlighting Jess' vocals. Despite the song’s subject, Jess uses some soaring “a-whoo”s which lend a slightly pop sound but, at the same time, back up the cautionary narrative. There is some clever looping too, to really emphasise the point.
Like every good country song it looks for the silver lining - you could keep your heart in a secret place or save it for a rainy day but basically as the title suggests love don’t give a damn, it doesn't play by any rules, it’s a stubborn hearted fool that will never believe you; love has a mind of its own; so you should just accept the way it is and get on with life.
Although there are a few minimal but very effective studio effects, I’m looking forward to hearing this new single played live, as it is sure to be a real crowd pleaser!
