Fan Boy Jake returns to raise the roof while simultaneously connecting on a very human level with a brand new Pop-Punk / Hip Hop hybrid titled “Stay A While,” stylishly balancing energy and musical optimism with humble lyrical honesty.
Fat guitars, smashing drums, and catchy lyrics, all these traits describe the modern Pop-Punk sound that Fan Boy Jake stands for. This up-and-coming artist started his career in a tiny basement in a small town near Vienna, Austria. He still records his songs independently and manages to create a massive vibe like his most significant influences, such as Green Day, Sum 41, Machine Gun Kelly, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (jk).
Fan Boy Jake weaves melodious ambiances and emotional aspirations throughout a refreshingly genuine, courageously open, fittingly titled “Stay A While,” which is conceptually appealing from the start for the familiar voice tone and the relentlessly honest outpouring that is engaging.
The music leads with the power of songwriting but shines thanks to faultless performances and the production’s bright, crisp, clean nature together with gentle yet uplifting, increasing the energy throughout, with Pop-Punk vocals but a more delicate, long-form writing style and clear Hip Hop-kissed rink of sound-play,
The sound is one-of-a-kind in every manner, not least structurally, as these numerous portions shift from genre to genre and from pandemonium to serenity. Fan Boy Jake adds a degree of character and vulnerability that complements the flow of the song and provides a genuinely authentic, natural connection.
It’s a welcome return to organic, live Pop-Punk / Hip Hop and innovative songwriting, and it’s a beautiful example of what we may expect from the artist in the future.
Fan Boy Jake is unquestionably an artist worth fleeing with and one to keep an eye out for on the slowly returning live scenes in the coming months.
