Jesse Gold’s debut album circles around the theme of a beautifully broken heart. There is no doubt this Toronto bred artist has snuck up on your instagram explore page, or suggested soundcloud listens. From covering Kanye to Carrie Underwood, Gold really knows no boundaries and that remains evident throughout “On Our Own”.
The singer/ songwriter takes a more pop country side of things during the debut track “Pretty Girl” and continues with that theme throughout. It is evident just by the titles of these tracks that this album is dedicated to lost love and the struggle of losing someone. Gold still manages to take an otherwise depressingly honest lyrical layer and pair it with summerlike melodies making us confused as to how we can enjoy his pain so much. Overall, On Our Own proves to be an impressive and unapologetically honest LP and one that will undoubtedly be playing through our stereos over this holiday season.
Jesse Gold has now released two videos for the singles Pretty Girl and Holding My Breath, both directed by his talented older brother Daniel- what a sibling duo.
