Jack Garratt - Phase Album Review


Winner of the Critics' Choice category at this year's Brit Awards, BBC Sound Poll of 2016 and shortlisted for MTV's Brand New 2016. Jack Garratt has a received a great amount of expectation to live up to with his debut album Phase.

Jack Garratt - Phase Album Review

Coalesce (Synesthesia Pt II) is a gentle opening to the album with a fade in of Garratt's subtle vocals. The track is the first of many surprises featured on Phase with the exploding of an electronic chorus thrown in the proceedings.

The Brit has rightly earned the aforementioned recognition, as shown with tracks like Breathe Life which features catchy beats with its keys and percussion helping make the song come alive. The positive and upbeat lyrics against Garratt's soft vocals are pop perfection.
