Jake Slater, aka JJ Slater, uses the power of music to convey how he feels about leaving something, someone, or somewhere you love.
The newest EP, An Obscure Moon, is a detailed five-track story that takes listeners on an emotional roller coaster ride. Whether it’s the transition between a slow and sultry stand-up bass to an energetic pop melody or a distorted wail of the electric guitar to robust vocals, An Obscure Moon keeps things interesting and groovin’.
“Halfway between crisp singer-songwriter folk and blown-out psych music,” Slater says about the EP. “I wanted to present [An Obscure Moon] in a way that, when played live, I can shout ’em solo, or blast ’em full band, or do anything anywhere in between—they are about leaving, [but] the next EP is a little bit more about coming home.”
