Jelly Crystal

Jelly Crystal is the solo project of Filip Johnson (who also plays in HOLY‘s band), who made a splash with his self-titled debut EP last year. Now he’s back with a new single, Now Awake, with Scott Walker and David Bowie listed as influences. Those influences are worn well on Now Awake, as Johnson revels in the kind of high-drama, high-art solo star role those musicians made their names with. Now Awake is epic in scale, fully-loaded, elegant, charismatic old-school glam-pop. Its grandly cinematic sound is made for movies, and who knows, maybe someone will put it in one someday. Till then, listen below. It’s out now on Gothenburg label West Coast Records.
