Florida’s Jordan Esker & The Hundred Percent unveil melancholic ‘Broken Soul’, narrating the journey through one’s late twenties. Growing within the indie scene, their vibe is dreamlike – melding electronic synths and guitars. This misty instrumental is accompanied by a stirring vocal performance.
“This is squarely a late 20s song. I’m personally at a 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
