Her latest single, “Bad Love” is gaining her some well-deserved attention, and we can’t wait to share it with you now. Read on to discover your next favorite alt singer-songwriter, Jazz Morley.
JAZZ MORLEY - BAD LOVE
“Bad Love” is her latest offering, and according to the track’s SoundCloud description, it’s “about the insecurity and jealously that comes with new love; the heady cocktail of exciting romance mixed with the fear of being burned.” It’s a totally real and relatable concept that is refreshing to hear addressed in a song— Lyrics like “how can I get through this?” and “I don’t think I’m ready for this going steady but I love you bad” perfectly express the conflicting feelings of a new relationship. Soothing keys, calming atmospherics, and bubbling soft production keep you hooked throughout its duration.
JAZZ MORLEY - SET HER FREE
“Set Her Free” leads you in with piano and Morley’s soft and smokey vocals that eventually layer into a warm and emotional whirlwind that feels like being wrapped in a cuddly blanket. Light and airy production hits shortly after the 1:00 mark, before guitars, claps, and subtle but effective electronics help the intensity build. Even the lyrics are ridiculously peaceful, with lines like “set her free/ release my body.” The track keeps a soothing, almost ambient vibe through its 4:12 duration, making it the perfect addition to your “Chill Out” playlists.
