Last year, when I was on a hunt for a new faza subject and getting to know music by different people named Jack, one of the people I became familiar with was Jack Hawitt, and I shared a song called Dark Hotel sung by him and the Norwegian singer Nyaki on here. Even though of course he didn’t end up becoming my faza subject, as he is “too normal” for me, I do like a lot of his music and I ended up really liking his new song released last month, so I’m sharing it with you.
This song has been one of my favourites for quite a while now. I’ve heard about Jack Hawitt for the first time some months ago, don’t remember when exactly, and this song was the first of his that I’ve heard. This must have been around the time that my faza on Gwil was slowly fading from the dominant position so I was beginning to look for someone new to get a faza on. Jack Hawitt was one of the first candidates that I’ve considered, mostly just because his name was Jack and I wanted to have a faza on Jack, but it didn’t work out, he’s cool but too normal for that.
What I like most about this song is the lyrics, which I think are very relatable but also full of hope, hope that there is help and support out there, for many people with mental illness, or those who experience some temporary lows or crises in life as well. Also it’s just a very nice song, and both Jack and Nyaki are very good singers.
Jack Hawitt is from Britain, and he’s been active as a singer for a while already, and Nyaki is from Norway, but I haven’t heard any other songs by her.
For me it’s always hard to pick just one,but, hm, lately I like the new song by Jack Hawitt and Nyaki called “Dark Hotel”, maybe will feature it some time soon in my song of the day series. I was searching for some nice Jac- musicians and this piece, which is relatively new, caught my attention.
