Australia-based Jacob Lee has released his latest single ‘Artistry’ via Philosophical Records. The track was produced by Matthew Bartlem of Loose Stones Studios (who has worked with the likes of Broods, Matt Corby, Dead Letter Circus).
Released as the third single from his acclaimed second album, ‘Artistry’ touches on an unbalanced but beautiful side of love. Through each stroke of his pen, Jacob Lee twists metaphors in a manner that leaves the listener simultaneously brimming with empathy and void with loss, showing us that music so gracefully elegant can also be woefully deranged.
Jacob had this to say about his latest single ‘Artistry’: “’Artistry’ could very well be the most tragic song I’ve ever released. From a tapestry woven by purity & love to a travesty knotted & barely recognisable, ‘Artistry’ conveys a twisting of love. It was written vaguely 8 months ago at my parent’s home on the Gold Coast. I was sat on a bar-stool near our old garage, messing around with the chord progression from ‘Oceans’. The majority of it was penned throughout that day, even though I had to study the terminology behind how tapestries were made… This piece is an ambiguous example of how fragile we feel in a position of selflessness, yet also how authoritative & powerful we feel when being selfish, even though, in reality, we eventually realise it is always the complete opposite.”
