Jacob Saint Patrick is here to bless your holiday
The holidays are always such a special time of the year. It’s when we hear the beautiful songs that become nostalgic memories imprinted in our minds and we smell in the air the crisp, smoky scents of pine trees, candles, sweets, hot chocolate, and snow (at least in some places). We also get the mystifying feeling of joy and tradition in aura of the activities occurring around you, and now, Jacob Saint Patrick is a new artist spotlight that is here to add his own magical twist to everyone’s favorite holiday in this stunning and breathtaking rendition of the holiday classic “O Holy Night.”
Jacob Saint Patrick is a mysterious collaboration with a story of hard-work so humbling you can just hear the strife in the luxurious tones of their vocals and instrumentation. Today, JSP releases its debut track made just for the holiday time. JSP’s sound would best be described as music similar to “alternative rock turned bedroom pop.” In essence, it’s a form of angsty music gone mainstream that becomes a part of your top playlist plays, while still carrying that emo, indie-folk tone. Their sound is reminiscent to compositions by others like Bon Iver, Tep No, Yoste, The 1975, Aquilo, and Emmit Fenn.
Jacob Saint Patrick is a formation of ex-Dreamer & Son bassist Jake Sierzega and guitarist Matt Bolton. Their cover of the track was in dedication to the strength and persistence of those who participated in the migrant caravan on the southern US border, in their search for a better life. Below, the artists offered two links to Human Rights Groups that listeners could contribute to in the spirit of the holidays, love, and giving:
The new single is something of dreams truly. It’s a concoction of sounds that roll off the tongue and dance around the mind in the most fantastic of ways. It’s a gentle song that Jake fractures with his broken, velvety voice as he carries the feeling of a heavy sigh throughout the single. A new sense of emotion is created by the work of both Matt and Jake, as they team up on this traditional escapade. The music builds up in just the right areas, and the lyrics fall off lips as if speaking in whispers. By 3:35, literally the world explodes around you into this harmonious, euphoric land of melancholia you–a gorgeous creation of juxtaposition you have never experienced before. Just blast this track to understand what I mean. Truly, the guys resuscitate a new life into the song and add a soul to its ghostly personality.
You can now find the track on Spotify, Apple Music, and others, so be sure to give it a listen and let it take over your holiday like it has mine!
