JOSH ON CAFFEINE has made his heart-breakingly stunning debut with the genre-bending single “Forward”. The Alt-Pop Soundscape draws in Neo-Classic nuances to ensure that the striking notes sting with maximum potency while elements of Folk to give Forward a natural, authentic and expressive air.
There’s a rare humility found in JOSH ON CAFFEINE’s lyrics and vocals and their candid lyrical style is perfectly complemented by their approach to production which perceptibly pays no mind to archetypal constraints. I haven’t been this enamoured by an artist since I discovered Bill Ryder-Jones’ tenderly compelling style.
The hauntingly sweet earworm will stay with you for long after it has faded to a quiescent close. Naturally, we can’t wait to hear what comes next from JOSH ON CAFFEINE.
