Eighteen is the latest Pop Hit from up and coming recording artist Jason Grillo that leaves no time for an introduction. The rulebook for creating an archetypal Pop hit was well and truly out of the window when the singer songwriter composed this viscerally electric hit. Eighteen is a track which throws you right back to that awkward age where you watch everyone around you take a different path, so to say Jason Grillo’s track resonates almost sounds like an understatement.
The Pop beat comes alive through acoustic instrumentals alongside digital effects, which simultaneously leads Eighteen into Indie Pop and EDM Pop soundscapes. There are very few Pop artists out there to date who pack as much emotion and momentum into the lyrics as they do the beat. If I don’t hear Jason Grillo’s beats pounding through the monitors to a heaving dancefloor in years to come, I may just loose all faith in DJs.
