BLAZAR is back. We at The Static Dive have been following Jerad Finck’s new project since he dropped the Alternative Electro-Pop gem, “Better”. Each song since has been a new adventure through musical genres. So far the talented singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist producer has dealt in Modern Pop, 90’s style Alt-Rock/Industrial, and EDM club bangers.
All of this sonic exploration is made all the more impressive by the fact that, at every turn, he pulls it off. BLAZAR’s latest single is yet another bold move into new territory. “Precious” is a taste of 80’s Pop, Prince style. Jerad has conjured the spirit of the Purple One for a sexy, funky romp soaked in the Minneapolis sound.
We are going for a Prince meets Michael Jackson new age kind of thing. It’s a straight up love/sex/attraction song. I wanted to create a vibe as opposed to a more structured song. This is what BLAZAR is about, combining and stretching into new creative realms and pushing boundaries with super rad people.Jerad Finck
If (like me) you’re a Prince fan, you’ll have this one on repeat. From the slap of the bass to the fabulously 80’s synths, the song is infinitely satisfying. Released on September 18, 2020, “Precious ” was produced by BLAZAR & Anthony (ajax) Resta (Duran Duran, Elton John, Perry Farrell). It was mixed by Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Shakira, Stevie Nicks) and mastered by Hans Dekline (U2, Lisa Loeb). It was written by BLAZAR, Anthony (ajax) Resta, Jay Condiotti (Collective Soul, Raven-Symone, Tiffany).
