UK future-soul singer-songwriter Jordan Higo arrives today with his debut single Lock & Load. The new track is available on all streaming platforms now and showcases his velvet vocals against a slick groove and emotive soundscape.
“In life you meet people you trust and people you don’t trust,” explains the new young artist. “I think the hardest part is when you ﬁnd someone you really trust and you want to tell them things, but the voice in your head tells you to hold back and not submit to vulnerability. Vulnerability is too often compared to weakness. Being able to open up and let someone in, for me, is the complete opposite of that. Vulnerability is something that I struggle with. I guess this record was a manifestation of seeking conﬁrmation, that should I let you in…can I rely on you for sure?”
Jordan’s debut EP Woman is slated for a 2019 release via Ellemer Music, and Lock & Load offers a taste of the flavours of the new record. Influenced by RnB heavyweights like Miguel and Drake as well as the classic pop of Michael Jackson, the Huddersfield musician’s vocals are instantly recognisable and combine instinctively with smooth production sounds and beats from LinkLewis.
