TRACK REVIEW: Jack Mylchreest – City Break EP | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Reliably informed

Lead track Road Trip In The Rain is a strong rock song evoking Bryan Adams, describing a jaunt that is carefree and happy to be in the company of its travellers, despite the weather. There’s a similar joyful feeling on Luckiest Man Alive and NYC, as they narrate their tales of travel, awe and love.

The lean on Americana, particularly on closer NYC, the iconography, familiarity and aspiration are a given, of course. In the case of Through The Glass though, it’s a darker, less wholesome feeling about Amsterdam’s Red Light District we’re observing by proxy, a vicarious lust and uncertainty.

Overall, these four earworm contenders stick to the country and rock sounds Jack Mylchreest’s known for, strengthening his position as a top-notch songwriter.
