After capturing audiences with his singles, “Two Little Lights” and “Giants,” Jackson Guthy is back with his new single, “Crash.” This fresh track off his upcoming EP tells the story of someone accepting responsibility for a failed relationship and actively trying to mend it. “‘Crash’ is one of my most personal songs to date,” Jackson said in a press release, “It’s about knowing your toxic actions are the reason the relationship is ending, but at the same time doing everything you can to repair what’s broken. It’s a really special song to me and I’m happy I’m finally able to share ‘Crash’ with my fans.”
The image Guthy chose for the “Crash” artwork is also very symbolic. In the image, a boy stands in front of a cracked mirror as if he is confronting and accepting his own personal flaws just like in the song, “Crash”
The song begins with a cosmic build up before ascending into the first verse. “I don’t wanna go back, It’s running all around these walls,” Jackson sings. The emotionally raw lyrics flow over piano and into a drum enhanced chorus before descending into an equally vulnerable second verse.
Although the subject of the track is on the heavier side, it’s hard not to sing along. Fittingly, the single release was paired with a lyric video; so you can easily sing along.
Guthy’s talent and authenticity will be showcased at his upcoming live show at the Moroccan Lounge on September 18. If you’re in the LA area, grab your tickets here.
