Cold Killer – Jordan BrattonJanuary 2, 2014
Jordan Bratton has captured my attention since he started sending me music four months ago. During my vacation, he released his debut 14 song free project “The Grey Area“. It’s filled with everything that caught my ear before, engaging beats, vocal harmonies, and a willingness to experiment with different sounds. “Cold Killer” is my favorite song of the previously unreleased content. Starting off with a keyboard line with a timbre vaguely evoking “Superstition”, the song moves quickly into a vocal section promising retribution in fights and warning of a cold heart in relationships. Bratton’s voice is sweet and addictive and he knows this, taking time to drop the beat and luxuriate in a brief acapella section. This song is tight, sleek, and well produced. Listen for the pause in the beat designed to emphasize the lyrics. Check this out and be sure to download the whole project here.
