Jack Garratt - "Weathered"
Though Jack Garratt's catalog is relatively small, it's impressively diverse. His first offerings experimented with a few different styles, ranging from soulful R&B to more electronic-based productions. Though they all worked thanks to Garratt's talent, it was unclear what he was aiming for. And then you hear "Weathered" and you realize, this is it. This is the kind of song that a voice and ability like Garratt was meant to make.
The track starts off rather minimally, relying on just guitar and slight percussion to soundtrack Garratt's voice. Then as the song goes on, it builds into this masterful and gripping ending that shows you just what the singer is truly capable of. It may be his best offering yet.—Katie K.
