PREMIERE: Jack R. Reilly – A Set Of Reasons
To write a faultless song is a special thing, to have a back catalogue that consists entirely of faultless songs is truly remarkable. Jack R Reilly is a truly remarkable artist. Today, Laundry Echo, is proud to present the latest single in a beautiful body of work ‘A Set of Reasons’ and announce its accompanying tour.
A Set of Reasons opens on a series of spacious chords floating around a continual electric beat that snaps like a metronome and sets a constant safety for the song to stay grounded to. Regardless of its ever-expanding growth you find yourself coming back to the consistency of its snap. Reilly’s initial verse is delivered in a style that hints at hip-hop fundamentals before breathing out and into an expansive piece of indie constructed on an ever upwards spiral. Gang vocals grow out as a galloping bass line commands the direction of the song. A Set of Reasons is ultimately a masterclass in sublime song production, starting simplistic and ending all encompassing. Credit also due here to the incredible Jonathan Tooke who produced the single.
A Set of Reasons is self-reflective, cathartic and home to the single most beautiful song lyric of the year in ‘I find purpose and reason in you’ , which is punched home with an increasing conviction and earnestness that stirs something within the listener. Be that the intense need to speak to a loved one or rediscover where their own sense of purpose lies; A Set of Reasons tugs at your heartstrings before setting them free.
Beautiful and incredibly mature song writing is ever present throughout, leading A Set of Reasons to stay with you long after your first listen.
Laundry Echo is also thrilled to today announce Jack R. Reilly’s joint tour with The Flying So High-Os throughout May and June. Presented by Extended Family, you can find all the details you will need below or right here.
