New York Musician, Jared Weiss, naturally stands out from the crowd through his depth of thought that has been translated into pheneomenal songwriting throughout his latest album release, ‘Isolated Thunderstorms’. Here’s our thoughts and track-by-track perception of the release.
Kicking off with the first and title track, “Isolated Thunderstorms”, Jared introduces listeners to his soft yet soulfully potent vocal style which leads into the lyrical trajectory that speaks of Jared’s tendency to become absorbed within his own manic thoughts that are creating a barrier between him and the outside world. The second track, “Annalu (From Monterrey)”, begins with a sweet harmonica that trickles into a lyrical tale speaking of Jared’s desire to connect with a fabricated version of what he would love to encounter within a relationship but has yet to find in the real world. “Get Out Of My Head” is the third track that lyrically confronts the demons and crazed thoughts in Jared’s head that are stifling him and leading him astray when it comes to embodying the man that he become.
The fourth track, “Not Everything That Dies Grows Old”, begins by lyrically speaking confidently about a relational experience of the past in which Jared felt free yet those feelings simply came to pass over years, time and experience. “Can’t Remember Your Name” is the fifth track that carries elements of Indie, Alternative Rock and Country as Jared lyrically speaks of his intention to reconnect with a lover from the past that still tugs on his heartstrings. The sixth track, “Isolated Thunderstorms II”, lyrically takes listeners into a dark and ruthlessly confronting glimpse into Jared’s mind as he attempts to walk through his mental experiences and map out a healthier way to be. “Julia” is the seventh track that lyrically tackles pulling the trigger and jumping into the deep end when it comes to love although the conscious mind recognizes that you’re moving far too fast for your own comfort. “Saving Tomorrow (For You)” is the ninth track in which Jared lyrically confronts his insecurities and current belief of his inability to create a healthy foundation in all of his relationships and friendships. Closing out with “Elusive Particle”, Jared ends with the album highlight that lyrically dives into a realm of wonder that he has experienced through deep connection with another idiosyncratic soul that he loves being around and spending time with.
