South Manchester based singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, Jude the Obscure, has unveiled his dreamlike debut EP, Moments.
Opening with title track Moments, the EP is a dynamic and diversely engaging sonic experience. Each of the four tracks showcase the wide range of talents Jude the Obscure holds, from the rock inspired percussion of Strong Enough that features traditional Manchester spoken word style flows throughout, to the heartfelt and melodic Waiting. Effortlessly closing off the EP is the standout smooth jazz-hip-hop hybrid Chapter 8.
“Moments is about hard work; about overcoming the hurdles that life throws at you; about coming out on top in light of the hardships we face in our day to day lives. It’s an anthem of resilience and perseverance – surviving your early twenties with ambition, aspiration and sanity intact is no easy feat. One way or another, we all find ways to cope with what’s going on around us, now more than ever.”
Oozing with charisma and soulful charm, Jude the Obscure’s Moments EP is an experimental and completely captivating collection of tracks by one of the North’s most exciting emerging artists!
