Jack Symes looks to the heavens in new video "Cool God"





Jack Symes looks to the heavens in new video "Cool God"

If there were ever a time to question the wholly unjust nature of our universe, it would be the last two months — thankfully, New York songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jack Symes provides a pleasant downtempo indie meditation on the unfairness of our current pandemic via new video “Cool God.” Over mellow muted chords and easygoing percussion, Symes’ nasally vox questions the decision-making process of our Creator, asking at the track’s beginning, “do you ever look down below at your children in sorrow, and think ‘what have you done?’” Symes continues to parse recommendations to the Great I Am, including but not limited to having a smoke and sharing a “cold one” with the various angels and saints. It’s through this irreverent narration that Symes hits on a note many of us our likely thinking — something to the extent of “Jesus Christ, could we get a break for once?” — albeit communicated in laid-back manner that may provide a necessary, chill reprieve from the hyper-seriousness of the present. Watch it below.
