Jack Steadman has been building an electronic portfolio on the side for the past three years. His day job — lead vocalist for Bombay Bicycle Club — deals primarily with indie rock, delving into the electronic world on occasion. Steadman’s solo project, however, is all electronic, making use of non-Bombay sounds like hip-hop beats and distorted samples to create something entirely different.
Steadman’s body of work consists largely of experimental vignettes and remixes, but his latest track “In The Morning” is his most complete piece yet. The track centers around a sample of a gospel rendition of the classic American folk song “O Death,” which when coupled with a fast-paced, sinister beat evokes a sense of eternal (but listenable) dread. With the ominous plea to a higher power, asking to “spare me over another year,” Steadman reminds us fools that we won’t be tearing up dance floors to these sounds forever and each year is a grace.
