ALBUM REVIEW: Jack Aaron Greensmith – A Never-Ending Sea | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Narc. Magazine Online

Reliably informed



Released: 01.07.23







North East artist Jack Aaron Greensmith stands at a crossroads, contemplating, acoustic in hand. His album is full of inner battles, outer landscapes, and time and tide ebbing away. It’s a lonely journey from the bedroom where the album has been recorded as a stripped-back return to his acoustic roots. Will he break out from the comfort, safety and security of those four walls? Will the never ending sea that surrounds be a sea of opportunity or restraint, the open water of foreboding and anxiety?

Deploying a deliberately restricted palette, Jack Aaron Greensmith’s broad bush strokes are applied through rhythmic strumming and dark, tremulous vocals. The songs have simple construction and restricted lyrics, meaning a sudden up or down turn in mood possesses real potency. A memorable album of naïve charms.
