I'm madly in love with Lincoln Jesser. Part singer-songwriter, part electro-pop, part shoe-gazer, part indie-dance, it adds up to create an act that instantly catches your ear with gleaming melodies and impassioned lyrics.
On Sunday I was lucky enough to catch him play the Roxy at the Sunset Strip Music Festival and it was exceptional:
Compelling indie-dance with emotional undertones that are instantly familiar - love, struggling to make it work, lust, growing up different. The lyrics are catchy and clear; they elevate him from being just another dance-pop guy to being an artist providing his audience an experience to listen, feel and dance it out.
He's young but not inexperienced. With a couple of EPs to his name and a few collaborations, he's poised to take on even more. I look forward to seeing what's next for him.
Catch him live at Los Globos in Los Angeles on October 3rd.
