“Parachutes” by Jordan Mackampa
UK based indie singer/songwriter Jordan Mackampa opens up his heart and pulls us into the bittersweet realm of “Parachutes”. With this mesmerizing and human soundscape he unites melodies and lyrics that together speak to our hearts and souls allowing us to instantly connect. The song flows with such naturality and ease that our imagination can pain a picture that reflects the pain and reality that resides within this soundscape. There’s something about this song that speaks so true and so real that we can’t help but understand and embrace the verses as we agree with them for they have been part of our lives as well. So listen carefully and enjoy this marvelous ride.
“Parachutes encapsulates those situations with people you’ve come across in life; who aren’t who they pretend to be and the person they are with you, isn’t someone you want to be around. However because you love them, either platonically or romantically, you’re conflicted by your feelings for them until it gets to a point where you don’t want to be hurt anymore.
Nobody is perfect, but if you were trapped in an airplane with them and they had a parachute but you didn’t you would jump out regardless, because any pain you would experience afterwards, won’t be as bad as what you’ve already gone through.” – Jordan Mackampa
