Austin indie-folk musician Jack Wilson is known for his ability to transport a listener to a point in time. With outlets including Relix and American Songwriter latching on to the work on his latest album, Spare Key, there’s no doubt this strategy works. His latest single off the album, “Rainbow/Tiger,” contains the same gentle strings and harmonies, lulling melodies and contemplative lyrics of past singles, while managing to be the most honest single to date. Wilson says, “I wanted to be supremely honest, for once, in a song. I had come out of a hard year and a real desperate feeling for real closeness. The Rainbow Tiger was an outlet, a stand in for my hopeful escape from the doldrums.”
