Didgeridoo by Bonded Jacky: Review
The LA queer artist and singer-songwriter Bonded Jacky goes back to the days of innocence on her nostalgic journey of grief in her new single Didgeridoo.
The song is a collection of Bonded Jacky’s fondest memories with her late childhood best friend Joshua. The thing about losing someone, is they live with you in your memories. Sometimes it tears your heart out That they’re no longer here with us, but sometimes that very same person’s memory even at most random times fills our hearts with joy and those memories keep coming one after another and fill us with warmth.
This very experience is brilliantly portrayed in the song. The sudden turns in the musical sections imitate the feeling of jumping from one memory to another. The different sections having different background and ambiance gives the vibe of vividness and adds to the expressiveness. From the bright instruments to the spontaneous child-like innocence in the vocal performance and melodies evoke the fondest memories of the listeners too. The song may sound a little eccentric to some because of the sudden unpredictable changes in the music, but you soon realize that’s part of the charm. If this is the song that’s introducing Bonded Jacky to you, I invite you to check out her previous works as well.
