Opening with what seems to be the soundtrack to some spaghetti western, Joseph J. Jones‘ ‘Crawl’ is a track which is ‘the good’ minus ‘the bad and the ugly’. His deep voice echoes over the desert of decibels that is the sparse instrumentation of this track. The chorus is catchy and by the time the second verse comes around the song gains added swagger. The synths and psychedelic effects of the ending mix cowboys with junkies, but ultimately the track is started, supported and sustained by that astounding voice. Joseph J Jones is certainly one to watch; he recently returned from a European headline tour and a host of festival slots and is set to be a pivotal figure in 2018.
