Big city life, characterised by bustling roads, intertwined streets, and engulfing positive energy, has always been a favourite for singer-songwriters to explore . Jack Rasmussen’s latest release epitomises this feeling, seeing the Durham based singer relive nostalgic days in his hometown.
Simultaneously melancholic yet hopeful, Rasmussen’s distinctively pleasurable voice lends itself to a tune that’s perfect for a walk down your neighbourhood. For those who have been locked indoors for days, months, hell, a whole year, “City Road” offers a kind of escapism that is much needed.
At its core though, Rasmussen’s single is about finding yourself. Near the crescendo of the song, he confidently declares his success in finding the right path. An apt and serene track for these trying times indeed.
