Bayou – Varsity Jacket

The bedroom R&B artist delivers another bewitching slow-burner.


Mystery man turned not mystery man Bayou has returned with another downcast pop song named Varsity Jacket. The slow patter drumbeat that opens the song sounds like it was recorded a million miles away and Bayou’s voice starts off so slight you have to press your ear to the speaker to hear it. But it builds, and by the time the chords come in during the final act, it will have hit you.

Colette will release Cherry Cola / Varsity Jacket soon.
