Since the drop of his full-length album Art of Life in 2019, Jeremy Finlay has continued to cultivate his unique soundscape, blended with elements of soul, soothing jazz and soft rock. Marking a groundbreaking comeback, Jeremy drops his latest track “REASONS”, an effort filled with a touching nuance that tugs at the heartstrings and makes the mind float. Though the track divulges the many “REASONS” which he loves his partner, the artist recognises that even when there is nothing necessary wrong with a relationship — love sometimes only comes in seasons.
Aptly dropping the track at the start of spring, where new beginnings and fresh starts are promised by nature, Jeremy also turns his artistry to another cinematic music video. Located in a stripped back warehouse of plain white walls, the visual sees Jeremy alone with his microphone and guitar while pouring his heart-felt lyrics into the symphonic chorus. Throughout the visual, a clip of a couple running through a sunny field intersperses. Though vibrant and warm in colour, the clips are blurred and indistinguishable — highlighting that though they are memories of which the artist is fond of, they are distant and no longer present.
In his own words, Jeremy explains, “We were lovers, who became lessons. ‘Reasons’ is a musical story experience meant to capture the hope of what happens when a love ends: we learn. To be bolder, softer, wiser, and more whole.”
Once again demonstrating his skill to depict memorable stories within his songwriting, Jeremy Finlay continues to invite his listeners along a journey into his adulthood — with no painful topic or emotions off limits. To stream “REASONS” now, head below…
