With five talented acts taking the stage this Sunday, we wanted to provide you with the essential tunes by each artist.
“Idk Love” // Jeremy Zucker: One of the standout tracks from 2017 EP Motions, “Idk Love” is an uplifting song about youth and separation. The song captures Jeremy’s light songwriting and production styles perfectly.
“‘Bout It” // Jeremy Zucker (ft. Daniel James, Benjamin O): One of Jeremy’s most well-known tracks, the song exhibits a cool and simple bass line under a pleasantly catchy hook. The song also features two guest verses from rappers Daniel James and Benjamin O.
“Talk is Overrated” // Jeremy Zucker (ft. Blackbear): Jeremy’s debut track as a Republic Record signee certainly did not disappoint. The thoughtful single features a finishing verse from R&B/indie-pop legend Blackbear, a perfectly smooth collaboration.
