Rebalancing his life and signing with the UK’s Frictionless Music, Reynolds buried himself in the studio with engineer Owen Lewis and drummer Matt Singler, settling into the producer chair with a clear sense of purpose: sounding like himself. “I'd rewrite lyrics minutes before tracking, scrap a day of work because it didn’t hit the right vibe, and had to address some personal struggles all in the name of creating my most authentic expression.”
Born from this effort is Petrichor, Jon Reynolds and The Aches upcoming EP. Centered on revitalization themes, the tracks delve into depression, heart break, and self-discovery. Surrounding the dense, humanistic lyrics is Reynolds’s musical signature- an evolution of modern pop rock and larger than life vocal arrangements resting on an ethereal hum propped up by verby slide guitar. The first of Petrichor’s four singles will drop on June 19th with the entire EP arriving on August 4th.
