Video | Max Jury - Black Metal


[T]he heavy yet simple piano chords that carry Iowa born Max Jury’s “Black Metal,” jump out right away, creating a somber, smoky and intimate feel that is powered by falsetto vocals and lyrical notes of unrequited love. The stark composition seems to mirror his midwest upbringing, wide open spaces and the quiet, and his influences from Ryan Adams to Lucinda Williams stick out, but the modernity comes out with the tinges of vintage americana/soul breadth laid over an elegy about a girl.

Jury will be releasing an EP, The Sonic Factory Sessions on October 13 and is on tour in the UK selling out shows from London to Edinburgh. Look out for the EP in a couple of weeks.
