Justin Jay is a name that most of us are familiar with by now. Taken under the wing by Claude VonStroke and his esteemed Dirtybird label years ago, Justin was destined to be a star in the dance music community.
His Fantastic Voyage album was a smasher—garnering millions of plays across the internet. Today, he presents us with his second debut album Home. The album is a bit of a departure from Justin’s usual style as he personally sings on nearly every track and features accompaniments from his bandmates and friends from college.
Check out the first music video and a review of a couple of our favorite off the album below.
Flowers is a hypnotizing beautiful single, easily the most thought-provoking track on the record. The song is written about us growing through the toughest times in life; the hook “flowers grow in the rain” indicative of Justin overcoming life’s down times. The track is an emotional mountain – one that words simply can’t do justice.
Ease Up is a bit more of an uplifting ballad, which encourages an approach to not taking life’s trivial matters so seriously. It’s a fun and danceable tune, definitely deserving of praise as a stand out single.
Start to finish, Home is a story told by a young dude who is just getting his grips on life. Let’s be real – life can be a cruel mistress, and for some, writing music about it is the only way to express innermost feelings. The Home album is out everywhere today via Justin’s record label Fantastic Voyage. Full stream below:
