Harmonious vocals unwrap a poignant narrative in Common Jack’s exquisite ‘Still Awake’.
Still Awake is a collection of late night thoughts documenting my trouble sleeping. I was writing it right before I proposed to my now fiancé, so I was feeling like I was at the beginning of a huge new chapter in my life. Ironically — and unintentionally — the song has a ‘pacing the room’ vibe that pairs well with quarantine in the time of pandemic.
Love stories are a dime a dozen in most cases, but when they are pulled off with such zest and skill, you can’t help but become enamoured. Euphonious keys and strings drive the story forward at a relaxed pace, enveloping listeners in a sea of calm clarity. If you’ve ever been in love, you will connect to this track in a very special way.
