Emerging into the spotlight last year, JXN introduced himself to listeners with a steady flow of rhythmic induced alt-pop songs. They quickly started relating to people with their coming of age relationship storylines and their adaptive emotions.
Accumulating over 9 million streams, JXN’s online presence has lifted away from his social media influencer tag to a fully fledged artist who has now collaborated with artists like A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, A$AP Twelvyy, and has completed a national tour with Allday, Mallrat and E^ST and performed headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne.
For his new single ‘Outta Space’, he’s joined forces with Allday and Fossa Beats to deliver a relaxed alt-pop moment that hears him putting his ego aside and cohesively strips everything back.
“Tell me are you out there. Can you feel me out there. I can feel your energy a mile away. I feel your energy from outta space” he croons during the chorus while he really finds his voice.
Reflecting on his feelings towards someone, he explains how long distance can be hard when he’s doing a lot of travelling and how he’s trying to do everything he can to show his love and interest. While he may be always on the move, he’s always got them on his mind. And through the lyrics of this song he shows just how limitless that is.
With just an acoustic guitar leading the production, a simple hip-hop beat is layered to the track to add a pulsating thickness that allows his and Allday’s vocal flow to feel even more natural. The whole vibe of the song is very airy and relaxed, and you cant help but naturally just feel in-synch with the reflective nature of it.
JXN has yet again shown us another side to his artistry, and this is one that I’m really excited about because it feels so natural and candid.
