Carried Away by Common Jack's "Restless"

restless

A memory in motion, Common Jack's new track, "Restless," hits hard.

Inching up to a precipitous cliff-dive of emotion, this song probes at problems and worries enthusiastically.

At its start, this song is the sound of being lost in thought.

Reverb-doused guitar strings greet us head-on, joined by a 4-on-the-floor bass beat.

At a dancing pace, the singer's introspective intrusions lance our eardrums - coaxing us to contemplation.

You can feel the song shifting; changing direction early on.

Where to, Jack?

Onward and upward, it seems.

We're building on folk vibes - evoking Mumford and channeling the Turtles.

I'm reminded of Derek Trucks Band's "Down in the Flood" a bit, but the flood hasn't quite come yet.

Gentle acoustic plucking builds energetically - preceding a drop.

Into a rhythmic rivine we're dumped and this tentative track turns lively.

Part postlude, part parade, the song's end is every bit as climactic as a fireworks display.

Off into the sunset we march. Gone are our problems. Gone are our worries and gone are we as well.

Enjoy Common Jack's jumpy new track!
