While in France, singer/songwriter Jay Chakravorty met a Mexican woman who used to playfully call him Cajita, which translates into English as “little box,” thanks to the fact that she claimed that every time she met him, she would learn something new about him, as though he were opening a new little box of interesting things. 

As Cajita, Chakravorty’s latest effort, Tiny Ghosts has the singer/songwriter and producer employing the use of a variety of instrumentation – including synths, banjo, clarinet, glockenspiel, swirling electronics and swooning vocals, as you’ll hear on the latest single off the album, “Broken Glass,” Sonically and lyrically, the song seems to owe a great debt to High Violet-era the National, in the sense that the song has a pensive introspection – and comes from a very grown place, with the recognition of the bruised psyches, compromises, regrets and dashed hopes of adulthood while possessing a breezy, ethereal air.
