We’ve been following Jxckson since his debut single “Icarus” appeared on The Static Dive way back in November of 2019. Since then, the Austin, Texas based singer and dancer has dropped a steady stream of singles. A pure Pop devotee, his music combines elements of popular music from across the decades.
“A Little More” is the latest song from Jxckson, released worldwide to all major streaming services on February 25, 2021. The track is the singer’s sixth single to date, and his third from the forthcoming EP “Paradox,” due in May 2021. In a slight departure from his usual vibe, “A Little More” is a Dark Pop tune that digs deep into obsessive infatuation and self destructive behaviour. Although relationship strife is familiar territory for the songwriter, his earlier endeavours were delivered with tongue planted firmly in cheek. This time, it’s serious.
Rolling on a percussive 80’s inspired synthwave groove, “A Little More” matches its upbeat rhythm with a descending minor-key progression for a cool Dark Pop vibe. As Ambient synths and stark piano chords set the scene, Jxckson sings of his addiction driven desire to return to a painful and unhealthy past relationship. He sums up the conflicting emotions and bad decisions perfectly with the nonsensical logic of the lyric, “You’re no good for me, I need you in my life.” It is an insanity familiar to anyone who has ever been in love.
I feel like everyone can relate to wanting someone who wasn’t necessarily good for you. It was important that this track maintained this almost unsettling vulnerability at times. It has so many twists, turns, and layers that you can find something new with each listen.Jxckson
