LISTEN: 'Bittersweet Descent' by Ted West
Nick Cave. Chris Isaak. Massive Attack. If you mixed them altogether and added even more heartbreak, you'd get Ted West. His latest track, 'Bittersweet Descent', is a delectable slice of BreakBeat Jazz Pop. See for yourself:
As the horn section spirals further down, you go along with it, a willing passenger in the delightful journey. The delicate toy piano's innocence is played against wonderfully by the macabre, echoing vocals.
Ted West's intricate, broken style breathes new life into the tired singer/songwriter path trodden by so many before him. Experimenting with new styles and techniques, West is an exciting, interesting prospect, and one you definitely need to look out for. For more, check out his Soundcloud by clicking here.
