Indie post-punk artist jakson releases debut single ‘guilt'

jakson is a Melbourne-based singer songwriter. He creates moody, dynamic guitar music, with a strong focus on melancholy lyricism. His influences include The Drones, The Mountain Goats, Soccer Mommy, and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.

Having gigged and recorded extensively as the lead guitarist for Melbourne indie band ‘Dez’, the 21 year old is beginning his ventures as a solo artist.

Following a successful premiere with music blog Trouble Juice, his debut single ‘guilt’ (artwork pictured below), has been released independently on all digital platforms.

About the track:

'guilt' follows a narrative loosely based on a Raymond Carver short story, and tackles themes of masculinity and violence.

Expect some real lyrics, lush harmonies, bold guitars, and big dynamic builds.
