“Find What You’re Looking For” by Flint Eastwood
new EP Small Victories out 10.23.15
On Small Victories, Jax Anderson (the mastermind behind Flint Eastwood) has returned to her Detroit roots, mixing a taste of the theatricality of Motown, her more recently found love for pop music, & a few electronic beats for good measure. The result is 6 hook-filled songs, including the 1st track & single “Find What You’re Looking for”.
The EP was crafted + polished at Assemble Sound, a hub of creativity in Detroit’s Corktown, located in the 2nd oldest church in the city. The property was purchased by a group of artists including Jax’s brother Seth. In this crumbling & inspiring location, the new EP was created as a coping mechanism to help Jax deal with the loss of her mother, who was her biggest fan & inspiration. As the listener makes their way through the EP, they experience Jax making her way through her mother’s illness & passing, railing against it, then dealing with the feelings associated with such a loss, eventually accepting it & using it as driving force to continue to create.
Jax broke the EP down in one simple thought:
“Small Victories comes from the idea that doing anything creative in life takes a lot of persistence, struggle, and hustle. It’s easy to expect that the spoils will come easily and be immediately fruitful. But if you focus on the little things, the ‘small victories’, you realize that it’s those things that are the most rewarding. That’s what keeps me going.”
