Jordan Silver’s single ‘Momentary Thrill’ is beautiful. Concerning and never defeated, the running harmonies and medical melodies, charm as it soothes.
“I wrote this song a year ago when my self-worth was very much intertwined with the entirely unstable force of a volatile, hot-and-cold romantic relationship,” said Jordan. “I’ve since come to learn, along with the rest of the world, that even the things we think are the strongest pillars upholding our lives and identities can be completely fickle fixtures — whether it be our relationships, friendships, jobs, or even the very fabric of society itself.”
“Placing too much value on what seems certain or expected is to dig your own grave — in relationships, and in life in general. But hey, hindsight is 20/20, and we all mistakenly place value on things we shouldn’t. ‘Momentary Thrill’ reflects on the unpredictable forces and events that cause us to question our identities. Though its original inspiration was a breakup, it has an even larger meaning to me now in this strange time where nothing feels certain, and I hope it might strike a chord with how others may be feeling, too.”
Of the best traditions of bands like Five for Fighting, Pinegrove, and Toad The Wet Sprocket, from guitar to the introspective selection of the lyrical words, Jordan’s lovely vocals gel together into a summary of vibes and loving comfort.
“Most of my music is inspired by reflecting on heartbreak. There’s something almost magical about this existential hurt, and I try to convey that in my music. Even if those experiences can be unimaginably hard, I would hate for such a powerful feeling to go unheard, especially because it’s something we can all relate to from time to time.”
