Since bagging Best Solo Artist at the Cardiff Music Awards last year and garnering the adoration of BBC Radio 2’s Dermet O’leary – Jack Ellis’s rattling brand of overdriven rock n’ roll has taken something of a darker turn.
Showcasing a more patient and downright sinister sound on latest single Small Change, Jack grabs elements of blues, folk and grunge and runs with them, turning out a compellingly smoky sound, full of melancholic Americana.
Drenched in mammoth guitar riffs and chant-able choruses, Small Change is dive bar rock with a real maturity, brought about by its duality between lush folk instrumentation and no-holds-barred, air guitar goodness.
On the track, Jack said: ‘Whilst the track Small change tells us that love and life can be as painful as it can be beautiful, where affection can be substituted by control and becomes a dark dangerous game. The video ‘Small Change’ takes us a little deeper into the decisions we make about our relationships and the secrets we hold, sometimes fearing that anyone who looks at us twice must know the ‘weight’ we carry. For some that ‘fear’ of being exposed can become an almost daring, sometimes reckless thrill.’
