Soul can come from unexpected places. It's not just the purview of artists from the 70s or female singers with powerhouse voices. Soul is about how a song pierces you beneath the surface. About how a song worms its way into your subconscious and you find yourself thinking about its emotional resonance in ways you never expected. And if there's one thing we can say for sure about Max Jury
, he's got soul.
We've got the exclusive premiere of Max Jury's latest single, "Beg & Crawl," taken off his upcoming, self-titled debut LP (which is due out June 3rd), and it's a track that defies easy characterization but you find yourself listening to it on repeat regardless. Combining androgynous but intimate vocals with a simple but elegant instrumentation that recalls 90s alt-pop songwriters like Lisa Loeb or Fiona Apple and even a touch of 90s alt-country-era Wilco. If the rest of his self-titled debut is as hypnotic as "Beg & Crawl," Max Jury will have something very special on his hands.
