Introducing…Jack in Water

Jack in Water is the artist name of the idiosyncratic singer-songwriter talent William Clapson. Currently splitting his time between London and Palma de Mallorca, Clapson was brought up in a little village in Essex, listening to the diverse musical influences of his parents, ranging from the melancholy and drama created by bands such as Radiohead and The Blue Nile, to the powerful R&B and soul voices like Aretha Franklin and Diana Ross.

Following a string of emotionally charged singles, rising star Jack In Water released his debut album, You Don’t Feel Like Home, which is not a record to rush.

Creep. It was released as a debut single in 1992, and appeared on their debut album, Pablo Honey. The song wasn’t an initial success, but later became a worldwide hit when it was rereleased in 1993.

The song was supposedly written by singer Thom Yorke while he was studying at Exeter University in second half of the 1980’s. According to guitarist Jonny Greenwood, the song was inspired by a girl that Thom followed around whom also attended a Radiohead event.

The song talks about a intoxicated man that keeps following a woman around, whom he is attacted to. Towards the end, he is not enough self-confident to confront her.  

Music by Bergman: EOB

Welcome to Earth, the debut solo album from Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien. Working under the name EOB, O’Brien has funneled a decade’s worth of ideas and a broad cast of collaborators into a truly fascinating collection of music. This album bleeps and surges and thumps and whirrs, all while congealing into something quite immediate and accessible. It’s a straightforward pop-rock collection in essence, a sonic exploration in practice.
