Jay-Jay Johanson Wants to Bury the Hatchet

Swedish singer and songwriter Jay-Jay Johanson released his 11th studio album in 2017, Bury the Hatchet. Jay-Jay is one of those gifted ones whose albums are all very good, and he has varied his style just enough to keep things interesting. He’s done trip-hop, electronica, EDM, film noir jazz, and his natural ability at crafting melancholia has helped him gain a significant fan base in France. He sounds like he has lots of fun creating, and he makes it seem so simple. Bury the Hatchet contains some haunting piano instrumentals, and a standout track may be “Rainbow” featuring Lucy Belle Guthrie, the daughter of The Cocteau Twins’ Robin Guthrie. Below is the MV for the title-track.
