A Swift Rise: Jay’s Instilled in You [Alumni Records Glasgow]
Despite my constant rush, Instilled in You made me stop. There’s depth here, a myriad of emotions playing across. Jay, hailing from Glasgow, paints the town’s terrains with Ripples, teases untouched memories in Anemoia, and reminds us of familial bonds with his title track. With Embers, it felt like a culmination of a day’s fading light, swirling into the night. All I can say, amidst the endless records I review, this stands out. Crafted with both digital and analogue synths, Jay’s work is an atmospheric beauty to reckon with. And as a note to aspiring artists? Look up subSine | Academy.
