See It In My Eyes – Perth based band Jamaica Scream has just dropped the follow-up to their hugely successful track Mad For You.
See It In My Eyes once again sees the band amalgamating their rock and pop influences into a contemporary style, drawing on retro sensibilities and melding them to a fresh and invigorating musical hybrid. The new track is taken from their soon to be released, much-anticipated debut album On The Edge.
The new song features a driving rhythm augmented by blistering sax lines, rock- infused guitar licks and lead singer Dom Muscadere’s soulful stirring vocal performance. Utilising an unconventional arrangement, See It In My Eyes is a pop-rock assortment of surprising dynamics, memorable hooks and a lyric that condenses a unique idea into a sharply focused social comment that’s as enticing as it is revealing.
Where Mad For You had its feet firmly planted in a particular rock genre, See It In My Eyes is quite different, showcasing the versatility of the songwriting, the musicianship and the production. Kicking off with an intro that features sax lines gliding in and out of a guitar drenched pulse, the song soon becomes a vehicle for Muscadere’s concise observations about a relationship, using the intensity of the music behind him to enforce his double-edged words.
The opening line, ‘You wanna feel love, you wanna touch love but can’t you see it in my eyes?’ is a carefully nuanced inquiry whose resolution can only be achieved via transparency between people; a certain kind of honesty.
This truth-telling is reflected in the music too, with its stream of organic flourishes that mimic the emotional weight of the subject matter. See It In My Eyes will no doubt help expand Jamaica’s Scream’s burgeoning profile beyond Australia, with its impressive amalgamation of feel-good impassioned contemporary indie rock.
