It times like these that challenge my individual sense of sensuality. This column is supposed to be all about musical crushes. Those new, exciting folks that are the perfect package and really wet my fancy. There’s something extra special about this duo that challenges that because I’m so into both these kids by themselves that it’s a little overwhelming to take them as a duo! But alas, that’s how it’s given, so it’s how I must take them, and like a juice that’s too sweet, I pucker at the taste.
So the name is Jack + Eliza and they are two 20 yr old college students that make sweet jams. The kind you want to put on a mixtape to a real world crush or the kind that more fully realizes a Best Coast or Eternal Summers vibe. I even hear a little Zombies and The Momas & The Papas. I mean, how could you not just totally fall in love with these two or even steal one for yourself?
They are currently working on a full length and will be touring all summer. I’d suggest getting off your ass and checking them out!
