Love Jockey evidently has a few tricks up his sleeve because his second offering, ‘Love Fast, Die Slow’, may even top his original, ‘Sun Seeker’.
‘Love Fast, Die Slow’ has the same DNA as ‘Sun Seeker’, but where the latter feels predominantly psychedelic the former leans further into classic rock ‘n’ roll territory.
A constant, pounding drum beat gives the track an incredible momentum that never lets up and is only emphasised by Clarkson’s biting lyrics.
This song dips into vaguely romantic waters but it is far from a mushy love song – instead, the overall feeling is of seizing opportunities and smashing through glass ceilings.
By adhering to conventions and not trying to reinvent the wheel, Clarkson has made a song that when you hear it will make you feel like you’ve known it your entire life.
