Montreal staple, Jackson MacIntosh, announces his debut solo album My Dark Side, coming 23rd February 2018. He has also unveiled his first single ‘Lulu’, listen below!
MacIntosh explains that “‘Lulu’ was the first song I’d written after a dry spell that lasted about a year, which is pretty unusual for me, because I usually can’t stop myself from writing. It was sort of an unusual song for me, and was a song that led me to make a solo record. It’s about being excited about meeting someone new, being afraid to call them, floating around hotel rooms and festivals.”
Recorded over three years and two break-ups, My Dark Side is as confessional as it is casual: a collection of songs that oozed out of necessity. The debut solo album is now available for pre-order here.
MacIntosh spent 2016 and 2017 deploying funky, percolating bass lines on the road for indie pop outfit TOPS. He recorded and engineered the last two albums for Homeshake at his now-defunct home Montreal studio and venue, Drones Club. He has collaborated with Drugdealer as well as Montreal’s Bernardino Femminielli, all in addition to fronting the masterfully hooky power pop band Sheer Agony.
