Jensen Sportag sing about love with giddy abandon, like riding your bike downhill to your boo’s house so fast the bouquet in the front basket starts to unravel and flower pedals fly everywhere. “Gentle Man,” is one of those songs so classically, achingly up-front you can hardly believe it’s not covering an SOS Band deep album cut. Airy synths and the sound of a successful download lead into chorus lyrics like Gentle, I’ll be your gentle man/ darling, I understand this is my only chance/ I can be so gentle. It’s almost too sweet, it flirts with too sweet, but it’s not. It’s just right.
