|Jack Garratt is a 22-year-old multi-instrumentalist who knows how to do just about everything himself. He was brought up on Stevie Ray Vaughan’s blues, Jack White’s riffs and Frank Ocean’s R&B. Listening to this selection made him rethink his own musical plans. The ginger-bearded Brit is disarmingly relaxed on stage. He uses live guitar in his electronic music with impressive skill, switching instruments with the stamina of a distance runner. He’s a boxer on the drum pad. Without warning, his rough‑edged voice switches over to siren song that could capsize any sensitive soul. He’s the captain of his stage. Nothing is automatic, everything comes from within as he superposes layers of sound over floods of breaks. Jack has many things to tell us, and is indeed the voice of this year’s trailer.
