Jerad Finck just signed a deal with AntiFragile Music on Universal, and "BLAZAR" is the name of his new project under the label. He will be releasing a full album this year, and "I Like It That Way" is the first single to drop.
Starting from a simple phrase on the electric guitar, we are quickly introduced to the electro-pop groove magic that has made Finck and his new musical persona a goto for fresh sounds from the Pacific Northwest. Exploring the flood of emotion from a mutual attraction, "I Like It That Way" probes the instant physical chemistry of a new love. The last time we covered Finck's music, we described him as a 'poignant cross between Gavin DeGraw and Jason Mraz.' With a different look and a new perspective, the sound of BLAZAR incorporates a dance-floor focus into the existing instinct for sticky pop melodies. "I Like It That Way" sets the stage for a massive debut from this exciting, newly-minted AntiFragile artist, with an impeccable production and big chorus hook.
