Right from the off, Jade Moss sets a strong tone through the track, it is unmistakably her song and she makes sure you know it. She characterises all of the lyrics so well, providing brilliant moments of both sarcasm and emotion. I love her tone, full of power and control, which reflects the theme of the song flawlessly. The song is a cautionary tale of love in this shallow world and how to be careful when you have someone truly special because you will just as soon lose them. Her no-nonsense dynamic empowers you to be aware of your worth and what to do when someone doesn’t deserve you, this is a theme very important to Jade and something that she carries throughout her music:
“The music that I write is about my experiences with love, joy, strength and the importance of self-worth”.
This multi-genre musician seems to effortlessly blend together 40’s jazz with 80’s retro, 90’s old-school and trip-hop and it works perfectly, bringing all of these genres into relevancy with precision and ease. The vocals are warm and flow gorgeously; with influences from Etta James and Lauren Jones, you get the sense of great command of her voice.
The remixes are equally as masterful. The first being the Takezo remix that really changes the vibe of the track, shifting it from characterful jazz to a real nightclub dance anthem. The dynamics are vastly different without taking the attention off of the great vocals in the track. The Steff Garner remix is another stark difference but just as appealing, it still has the dance vibe but much more low key and the way it transforms the chords really changes the track in a delightful way, bringing in a whole new tension and depth.
It’s not only music where Moss has made her mark either, as the clothes she has designed have made it into major high street chains and huge online retailers. With such a savvy and creative mind, there is no doubt she is about to take the world by absolute storm with her upcoming EP ‘Only You’ later this year, where this song features.
