SINGLE REVIEW: See It In My Eyes by Jamaica Scream

Perth-based band Jamaica Scream has just released a new track See It In My Eyes, the follow-up to Mad For You which did extremely well for the band, garnering a lot of support from both commercial and community radio and a plethora of streaming sites. Mad For You was a track about the perils of addiction, utilizing an earthy, indie-rocksound and a heart-felt, poignant lyric and an impassioned vocal from Dom Muscadere. See It In My Eyes utilises a similar sound but has more of a straight-ahead rock edge andincorporates sax into the mix. The new track is taken from the much-anticipated forthcoming album On The Edge, which promises to be a compelling album of songs. See It In My Eyes uses a fundamentally classic contemporary rock-pop sound, withsome elements of blues in there also but utilises a non-traditional arrangement, surprising the listener throughout. It kicks off with a sax and guitar-led intro which segues into some full-throttled rock. A verse and chorus pattern leads into a syncopated bridge section which then evolves into a re-intro. Another verse appears before the refrain ‘Be my girl’ resolves the track. By this time the sound is ablaze, filled with fiery guitar licks, chants and bold sax riffs. Where Mad For You was a track with some real social bite to it, See It In My Eyes explores less politically charged terrain; love. Though love too can contain its own internal politics and that’s what a lot of See It In My Eyes is about. As Dom Muscadere has said of the song, ‘It’s about the wholesome goodness of family values coupled with the ability for all of us to enjoy passionate relationships’. And this idea is fleshed out, exploring the tension of trying to maintain this fine balance. See It In My Eyes is sure to achieve the same level of success as Mad For You and is agreat preview of what their debut album has in store.
