I'm not the biggest fan of guitar-driven tracks, but this one is impressive and too captivating to ignore.
Entirely focused on guitar works, the track carries an incredibly uplifting atmosphere, based on fantastic dynamics, moving melodicism and light vocals that perfectly enhance the character of the song. Written and performed by US artist Jeff and His Army of No One, the track is about holding on to hope despite the missed opportunities.
The musician comes from a punk background and is currently trying to branch out his style into a more indie/acoustic raw feel. This perfectly explains the electrifying nature of the track, showcasing Jeff's ability to transmit a lot of energy and emotion, yet keeping it simple in terms of instrumentation and vocals.
"I.O.U" is a great tune for those who feel like something indie today!
