BEST NEW INDIE: JP SAXE - THE FEW THINGS
It is the middle of March for us here at We Are: The Guard, where leprechauns run amok turning everyone's beer green and destroying March Madness brackets around the country. For the sober few, JP Saxe and his newest release, “The Few Things” will provide something lucky for the hopeful thinkers.
JP SAXE - THE FEW THINGS
Probably conscientious Canadian, JP Saxe now find himself trying to make it big in the entertainment capital of the world. While his debut single really introduced his style like somewhat of a jazz-club vocalist, fittingly accompanied by piano and soulful backing. Yet, his newest release doesn't deviate heavily from his debut, “The Few Things” sounds a lot like something from the band, Passenger, soft and mightily docile.
Really soft and quiet, “The Few Things” does allow listeners to witness some of Saxe's vocal versatility. Thankfully, a simple music video does drive home the point that it is a simple and sweet song that shouldn't be too complicated. About three minutes in, his falsetto is the perfect climax to such a passive number. If you are looking for something loud, boisterous, or even obtuse, steer clear of this one. If you don't mind just a light, feel-good pop track, this one is the absolute ticket.
