It would be easy to assume that Jack Murphy created his single “Trading” as an act of genre-defiance. Within the soundscape you get to sample elements from Indie, Hip Hop, and EDM in a seamless blend as the fluidity of his vocals sweep through the atmospherically layered mix. The drum pads provide the backbone to the rest of the track which comes together through a smorgasbord of haunting effects making that little bit easier to be snared by the lyrical hooks.
You can check out Jack Murphy’s single Trading along with the rest of his debut albums for yourselves by heading over to Spotify. With no two tracks the same each stands as a testament to the diversity of the up and coming artist’s talent which is often tinged with melancholy, yet the sound retains a magnetic vibrancy which makes skipping a track an act of aural blasphemy.
