A friend of mine turned my on to NYLON while in Newspaper class and my Grandmother was kind enough to purchase a subscription for me. I have spent the past week working towards getting through the entire February issue that featured Selena Gomez. Well, out of everything written on all 148 pages, one thing in particular stood out to me.
There aren’t many genuine, raw sounds in the music business nowadays. Everything is synthesized in someway. Jake Bugg came into my life at the perfect time.
He has a mighty nice folk sound that resembles Bob Dylan. There’s something about his lyrics that makes his song appealing. They very easily could all become teenage anthems if only more people knew of him.
“Lightning Bolt” was the first ever song I listened to by Jake and it immediately peaked my interest. If you enjoy this song, I greatly encourage you to listen to the rest of his album.
