Jackson MacIntosh releases his second single ‘Can It Be Love’ from his forthcoming debut solo album My Dark Side, out March 2. Listen below!
Jackson explains he was listening to Timelord by Momus a lot at the time when ‘Can It Be Love?’ was written. “It influenced the sonic palette and lackadaisical vocal delivery. I was also feeling like a bit of a timelord myself. I’d just moved back to Montreal from LA and the lyrics bemoan traveling all the time when you’d rather be with someone you care about. A classic musician’s dilemma, a classic songwriting subject (see: most of Hejira by Joni Mitchell). You’re hoping you’ve fallen in love, but you’re not around to find out. If your phone still works, I’ll call you and we’ll talk about it.”
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.
You may also know Jackson as the bassist of 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 Sheer Agony.
