It’s been 4 years since Tessa Rose Jackson’s happy-go-lucky debut album (Songs From) The Sandbox was released and in that time much has changed. Gone is sync-worthy television music and easy to play radio tunes like “Lost and Found” and “Now I See” that brought to mind West London nu-folk and Edward Sharpe’s pretty horrible waistcoats and in their place are a series of delicate and contemplative songs that showcase Jackson’s honest and meditative songwriting.
“Forget Forgive” is the third in a trilogy of singles that follows The Deep, a warm and brooding anthem and the more fuzz orientated “Say Something”. This latest offering is a chaotic insight into Jackson’s weird and wonderful mind packaged in a Nico-esque instrumental with the vocals to match.
Someone is essentially the perfect demonstration of a shape-shifting artist not confined by style and substance but by the power of their imagination. That is exciting.
