Jailbox's track "Bird Rib" is a beautiful jigsaw puzzle

























Jailbox's new track Bird Rib feels deceptively simple and comfortable but is full of jigsaw puzzle pieces of sound that fit together making a picture that is fully clear from a distance. I love how certain notes are repeated as glue to hold this evocative piece of music together and the selection of whether those notes are on guitar or piano or something else feels more random and organic than planned. Beautifully dynamic production around a somber story drenched in longing inside the very sweet vocal performance.
