“Illusion Of Love” opens up with the plaintive All These Kids I Never Knew, a tune that see Marchant sitting alone at a piano recalling the recent atrocities. It is a heavy tune and a beautiful tune. Also a bold choice on how to open the album but it works.

Jesse Marchant’s voice reminds me of Jim James on the track and another reserved track, I’ve Got Friends. The track has a tasty understated guitar lick and is surrounded by synths and strings as Marchant examines our need to share every last facet of our lives on social media.

That’s not to say that the album doesn’t get the blood flowing either. Tunes like 6&5, Nightships and the lead single all boogie with guitar riffs that range in inspiration. Illusion Of Love is Jesse Marchant’s 4th album,  This album’s genesis was a nasty bike accident in Brooklyn, that Marchant termed as an awakening.
