New Music: Jodi Heights – The Myth

Boston-based indie pop singer songwriter Jodi Heights has become something of a fixture on this blog since we discovered her earlier this year. Three of her singles have passed through our pages and now it’s four. The Myth is her latest, a truthful blunderbuss taking on the myth of the self-made man.

The Myth is delivered in a classic jazz and big band style. Yet, there’s nothing stuffy about it. It’s fresh alternative pop, with lyrics grounded very much in today’s world. Jodi’s way with words come through strongly, as do her beautiful vocals. The Myth is a wonderfully written and performed track with something to say. What more can you ask for?

This is the third release from Jodi’s new EP Triptych, which also features previous singles The Storm and The Iceberg. The three tracks together take on the three big issues of the modern world – a growing wealth gap, climate change and the pandemic.
