Josef Salvat - modern anxiety (2020)

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by jmmc13, Jan 20, 2013.

  1. “This Life” is about all that’s known to date about singer/producer Josef Salvat, but this lovely belter of a tune is more than enough to be going on with. Let’s hope the Australian-in-London (a lot of them about this weather) and ex-law student comes with more tunes with hooks as good as this to satisfy the current A&R rush.

    Josef Salvat, The Unsolved Mystery of Indie Pop
    WE DON'T KNOW HIM, BUT WE FEEL HIM

    Name: Josef Salvat

    Where He’s From: Australia/London

    When He Started: 2010

    Genre: indie pop, alternative

    Most Similar: Aqualung, Natalie Walker

    Sounds Like: sarcastic love songs

    Josef Salvat is a mystery. His website is tight lipped, and his discography is nonexistent. To date, the London based, Australian born singer made his only big Internet footprint with his impressively popular slow-mo track, “This Life.” So okay, we might not know much about him. But from his tweets? We FEEL HIM.

    Take this one for example on June 29:
    A day will come when I don’t have to drink a bathtub of gin before I can find everybody at this party hilarious and amaze.

    Salvat, let me tell you– we’ve BEEN THERE. Similarly, his lyrics have a sarcastic yet meditative air about them, making him all the more relateable. For example, in this line borrowed from “This life”: I just need to tell my story, if you’re drunk I’ll get done quicker.

    At times, his whispery croons ooze sex, while other lines are pure melancholy. He sums it up well in his other single, “Hustler,” where he admits he’s got the the heart of a hustler with all the hustler’s shame. Honest, borderline bleak lyrics paired with haunting vocals and piano make our mystery man comparable to a pop friendly Morrissey.

    Though there’s definitely more we’d like to uncover about Salvat, for now we’ll be thankful for the few awesome tracks he’s given us (Hear “This Life” below.) And hey, maybe we should be more thankful that there’s somebody in this day and age who manages to remain mysterious instead of Instagramming his daily meals. ;)

    What kind of male King's Wool though?
     
  5. Re: Josef Salvat, The Unsolved Mystery of Indie Pop

    That video is a mess.
     
  6. Re: Josef Salvat, The Unsolved Mystery of Indie Pop

    Well put me in a Josef Salvat t-shirt and call me a fan.
     
  7. Re: Josef Salvat, The Unsolved Mystery of Indie Pop

    The search function worked for once, phew.
    I love love love both of his tracks, and I want a whole album of depressing-as-fuck-yet-charming slowies.

    The video for "Hustler" came out a couple of weeks ago, and the EP will be released on June 9. You can see the video below

    Not keen on This Life but Hustler is brilliant.

    He looks older than 24!
     
  12. Re: Josef Salvat, The Unsolved Mystery of Indie Pop

    He seems quite charming. If his album lives up to This Life and Hustler it will be epic.
     
  13. Re: Josef Salvat, The Unsolved Mystery of Indie Pop

    I absolutely love his voice and both songs he's released are fantastic. His material would sound perfect for winter.
     
  14. Wunderbar, but I loved the previous two more. The vocal hook in the chorus is everything, though.
     
  15. Is he still unsigned? Why!
     
  16. A&E

    A&E

    Apparently the song will appear on an EP entitled In Your Prime. It was produced by Justin Parker.
