Jeeper’s “Change” Holds No Bounds
And I don’t wanna be the one
That makes it off the tree
And falls beneath
Can’t you see?
You’re living like you’re dead inside
And that don’t sit well with me
Lyrics to “Change” – Jeeper
Perfectly encapsulating the dreaded, pessimistic turning point of psychological and moral growth, “Change” by Jeeper allows one to realize the human experience isn’t what it’s all cut out to be. Lyrically dense, the subject matter showcases the protagonist coming to terms with the objective realities his role models face. The tone and arrangement of this track are soothingly sparse, light-hearted, and passively reflective of the observations made by a disillusioned adolescent. Inspired by the works of The Tallest Man On Earth, The 1975, and Lindsey Buckingham, the musicality presented holds no bounds.
“Change” is our journey into indie-folk. This track is driven by melodic fingerpicked electric guitar, brass sections and harmonious, emotionally captivating lyrics. It is produced and mastered at our most exceptional level, and we are immensely proud of the finished product.
Jeeper on “Change”
What is unique about this folk guitar single is the use of horns throughout the mix. Unusual for this type of genre, I was pleasantly surprised to see how effective the trumpet and saxophone worked with the other instruments. Slightly teased at each chorus, the brass section unexpectedly explodes in your ears at 2:44, forcing your dopamine signals to go haywire whether you like it or not.
Reverb-soaked guitars also play heavily into the development of the track. Tinglingly your senses, the six-stringed instrument meshes incredibly with duetted vocals, and pulsating bass drum, proving to be the backbone of the track. Nonetheless, it would be a sin not to praise the emotive singing off the tune. Tenderly sweet in contrast to the lyricism, the vocals emit warmth and raw emotion while also being effortlessly relaxed. Though never over the top, this singing style proves itself to be truly powerful, much like everything else on “Change.”
