Take a psychonautic pop trip with Zachary James’ rock-licked single, Slide Away

Experimentalism notably wasn’t in short supply in Zachary James’ psychedelic pop-rock album, Intergalactic. The lead single, Slide Away, featuring the staunchly virtuosic guitar work of Frederick Poholek, is a passion-driven trip through the cosmos. Led by distortedly soaring guitar lines, scuzzy synths, and, of course, Zachary James vocals, which emanate a visceral sense of soul into the single, allowing you to imagine what gospel music will sound like 100 years from now. Even if that is a bit of a stretch, it is a million lightyears away from the original version, first put on the airwaves by Miley Cyrus.

The New York-residing Grammy Award-winning artist is best known for his work on Broadway, opera, TV, and film, but now he has set his sights on the airwaves, he will undoubtedly reign supreme on them.

Zachary James & Rene Orth – Jabberwocky: A Harsh Electronica Sci-Fi Serenade

Electronica artists generally fall into two categories, the assimilators, and those who throw their authentic expression into their projects to create mind-blowing feats of indulgent insanity, ‘Jabberwocky’ from Zachary James’ 2020 album ‘Call Out’, definitely falls into the latter camp.

‘Jabberwocky’ is a theatrically enticing Sci-Fi laden hit which Zachary James created in collaboration with Rene Orth and Lewis Carroll. The progressive track runs through teasing melodic increments before crashing into tremulously bass-drenched Industrial electronica. It doesn’t matter which extreme the tempo is sitting at; you’ll be transfixed from start to finish in the mix which gives Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds a run for its money.

The multitalented artist’s experience as a Broadway actor discernibly fed into the monumental 7-minute visual single which becomes so much more than a soundscape as you embrace the chaos, imagination and cinematic style.

Jabberwocky is available to stream with the rest of the epic 25-tracker album via Spotify.
