SINGLE REVIEW: Jack Gray – Drunk Talk

After injecting euphoric vibes to mainstream radio with ‘My Hands’, Jack Gray headed on tour with E^ST, Dean Lewis and Mahalia to serenade audiences with his slick indie-pop that as a natural twist. His new single ‘Drunk Talk’ has been a favourite in his live set for a little while now and introduces a moodier sound. This mature growth sightly steps away from the euphoric production of ‘My Hands’ and heads forward with a bold and cool confidence. Reflecting on the nonsense that we sometimes project when we’re drunk, he looks at the regret, hurt and confusion it can lead to. “Your drunk talk isn’t fair”. it has a very emotive layering that perfectly represents that other side of drunk talking. Sometimes it can be fun and playful but sometimes it can also be hurtful. The production is moody and cinematic with a The 1975 meets Troye Sivan influence. It builds and really cements his full band sound that he’s trying to create. In the past he’s had some acoustic roots but recently his DIY side has been creeping out and with his full band live performances he’s becoming stronger and more confident with his creative vision.
