We have been blown away by the latest release from Jordan Mackampa. ‘Parachutes’ is a beautiful song that is catchy and mesmerising to its core. Mackampa is destined to have you reaching for the repeat button with this superb single!
Mackampa’s vocals are the shining star of the piece. We instantly fell in love with his voice from the opening. It is are rich and warm in tone, inviting the listener in and capturing their hearts. He has the kind of voice that we could listen to all day and never tire of. The quality of the songwriting lyrically is also excellent. Relateable relationship themes fill the catchy melodies, and we are sure Mackampa will win many new fans with this latest single.
Mackampa says, “Parachutes encapsulates those situations with people you’ve come across in life; who aren’t who they pretend to be and the person they are with you, isn’t someone you want to be around. However, because you love them, either platonically or romantically, you’re conflicted by your feelings for them until it gets to a point where you don’t want to be hurt anymore.”
Production of the single is by Dani Castelar (Paolo Nutini), and together Mackampa and Castelar have created a piece of art that is destined to stand the test of time. The production is concise and warm with rich tones throughout the song. There is a lot of instrumentation happening in the mix, but nothing feels crowded. Every part has its own space and shines in its own light.
‘Parachutes’ is the third single to be taken from Mackampa’s upcoming album ‘Foreigner’. It is scheduled to drop in March 2020, and for us, this date can not come soon enough!
