Jordan Esker & The Hundred Percent return with melancholic indie romp Broken Soul. Their previous release My Own Miserable saw pickup from the likes of Salacious Sound and Discobelle - with an astoundingly energetic sound, their own brand of indie is starting to turn heads. Broken Soul is taken from their Normalcy EP which is due for release soon; if the bright. synth-tinged sound of Broken Soul is anything to go by, it's set to be a winner.
“This is squarely a late 20s song. I’m personally at the point where I know what I want. And I’m bothered because I look around at those who are a little further along in age, or in the profession I’m in, outside of music, and I don’t at all want what they have. I was worried I sounded a bit offensive in this song but really that’s just the lyrical voice I use that allows my selfish-honesty side to emerge. It’s more a reflection of a poor outlook on the situation than it is of anyone around me; it’s the fear of a definite future and being able to see it." - Jordan Esker
