Hurricane Jane

On first listen, ‘Hurricane Jane’ sounds like a simple boy-meets-girl, asks girl-to-dance sort of song, but listen closer. “I took something and it feels like karate” trills Reggie Youngblood, “It’s kicked me down and left me for dead”. Yeah, this might be the sound of heartbreak, but it’s chemically enhanced, a lonely disco elegy for when your only company is whatever’s in your veins. It’s the space cadet’s very own ‘I Will Survive”.
