It’s not going to be very hard to get «into» pop/R&B indie recording artist Jack Tracy, as his new Motown-infused track «Into Me» has gotten the music video treatment.
The first single from his upcoming EP «All I Think About», the track debuts a new sound for the indie artist, giving heavy 80s Prince vibes. The track is currently available on all streaming platforms and the video you can watch below.
«I started dabbling in this kind of sound with my first single from my last album», Jack says of his new project, referring to one of his most streamed songs to date, «None Tonight» from his critically acclaimed LP «Gold» released last fall. «So I crafted this new EP to really explore Prince/Motown/Funk music, and ‘Into Me’ is a great introduction to that».
Lead by a driving bass guitar, Jack does his typical genre melding by borrowing from early 00s drum kits and utilising a piano riff reminiscent of Mariah Carey’s Honey. In the song’s infectious and catchy hook, Jack tells someone he has his eyes on that if they are into him, it’s not going to be that hard to get into him. «In addition to exploring a new sound, this is my first project entirely about sex, which I’ve shied away from in the past», Jack previews, revealing that his next single will be the dance track «Show Off» on which the singer brags about his prowess and skills in the bedroom. «I feel like most indie gay artists lead with sex, so I wanted to do something different. But now it’s time to go there».
In the video for the new single, Jack puts himself solely in the spotlight, using numerous points of view of him singing his track into a retro microphone complete with star wipes and disco balls–a perfect visual cue to Jack’s latest sound. He exudes confidence and chill vibes, gives a couple dance moves and ultimately writhes on the floor in a very Robyn «Ever Again» way. Jack also says that the visual is a celebration of his live performance skills and ability to captivate an audience without his typical heavy production and army of backup dancers. «Don’t worry, that’s coming next», he assures.
Jack’s latest project follows his most successful LP to date–«Gold»–which concluded with his fourth single and video last fall. The video for the R&B title track about the ups and downs of an indie recording artist can be found here.
