Jam of the Day: “How Could You Babe”

Hanna Kielar

Alright listeners, we’re slowing it down for our Friday Jam of the Day with a track from Tobais Jesso Jr. entitled “How Could You Babe.” This ballad is soulful and melancholy – the prominent piano melody is soothing, and combined with the lyricists’ words, the song drips sadness and pain. “How Could You Babe” reminds me of a Keaton Henson, if he had a twang like Jake Bugg. His voice is almost angelic on this track, as it is on his other released song “Hollywood.” Hungry for more? Jesso Jr. is set to release his full album Goon March 17th.
