Time stops easily with Jack Garratt. This solo singer and musician from the rural village of Little Chalfont, in Buckinghamshire presents us with a slow electro pop filled with constant micro-surprises – irregular beats, dispersed layers, asymmetrical vocal surges, chopped echoes of riffs. His music was unveiled in the fall with the release of his EP Remnants, and without its slow meditative colour, we could be fully consumed by the performance of his one man band, playing on various instruments on stage while singing on a line that often shares more with contemporary music than pop. Spellbinding.
