Jarell Perry - Braindead

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
HSVN
Album:
White EP

Fresh off earning reader acclaim for This Is Spinal Tap-inspired lead single Eleven, Jarrell Perry returns to The DJBooth with another fresh single off his next digital release. This slow-burning ballad finds the Golden State R&B buzzmaker caught in a classic conflict between his rational faculties and his feelings for a new woman. Over HSVN‘s dreamy, reverb-drenched synth harmonies, Perry soulfully expresses his ambivalence, crooning, “The heart knows what to do, but maybe I’m Brain Dead.” Whatever effect it’s having on Perry’s mental acuity, being in love certainly hasn’t hurt his songwriting chops, nor has it impaired his vocal abilities. If you like what you’re hearing, stay tuned for further singles leading up to the release of the artist’s currently-unscheduled White EP.

Update: We have added the Stephen Garnett-directed visuals for Jarell Perry’s Braindead single.
