If you, like me, are a forever listener of the iconic band, Oasis or a can’t resist a hint of Miles Kane, then it’s indefinite that Mortimer Jackson’s new release, The Trigger is simply the one for you!
LISTEN TO THE TRIGGER HERE:
A previous member of the band, The Steers, Mortimer has already experienced industry success. In 2007, the now separated band received airplay from radio king, Zane Lowe. Alongside this huge musical feat, the group also were awarded the ‘Diesel U Music Award’ for the Best UK Band. Now Mortimer Jackson is back with a much-awaited for solo-project. And this has been excitingly kick-started by the sparkling new release of The Trigger.

The single has been tagged as resonating the earlier sounds of Blur, whilst showcasing ’00s euphoria’ through the Brit-indie instrumentation and impressive songwriting.
Let’s get started, shall we?

The Trigger revels in the beauty of the many sounds the electric guitar can produce with a razor-sharp, indie tone, accompanied by tender and rich countermelodies. Just when you feel as though you can’t get enough of the guitar arrangement- which echoes all the values of the Brit-indie sound that most of us love to indulge in- Mortimer’s stylistic vocals, sprinkled with interesting and effective embellishment and diction, pull the song together perfectly.
Did you pull the trigger on us when you found out?
Lyrically, The Trigger could be interpreted as a musical portrayal of the frustration we can endure amidst the peaks and troughs of love. With the carefully tailored songwriting, Mortimer reveals such as, “Did you pull the trigger on us when you found out?”, his ability to paint a picture of vulnerability through lyricism is undoubtedly brilliant.
… a vocal hook that is so unbelievably appealing.
One of the track’s spotlight features is the descending vocal melody on, “What for?” The slide down through each note creates a vocal hook that is so unbelievably appealing. Not only this but it resonates Mortimer’s skilled vocal abilities.
Mortimer Jackson has made a brilliant leap ahead by returning solo, back into an industry, where there is definitely a market for this catchy, encapsulating and just god-damn great single.
We look forward to more, Mortimer.
