On The Table Read Magazine, “the best creativity magazine in the UK“, Jake Huffman has released his new 80s sci-fi horror mixed into a twisted fantasy like day dream single, Babe.
Connecticut based artist Jake Huffman has created a euphoric world of indie pop rock, bringing his anthemic energy to a worldwide crowd. The singer and drummer was previously well-known for his work in the viral alt rock band McLovins. Having carved out an opportunity to rediscover his identity as an independent artist, Huffman has returned with an arsenal of new music, which has been all completely composed, performed and produced by Jake himself.
The most recent project by Huffman combines his extensive experience and musical influences. Huffman and his band, McLovins, uploaded a cover of Phish’s “You Enjoy Myself” to YouTube when he was 14 from his Connecticut parents’ basement. The video went viral overnight and sparked a worldwide fervent fan base. He has performed with Blink-182, Foster The People, BB King, and The Flaming Lips since then.
Rolling Stone, US Weekly, NPR, and the legendary XPN Radio Programming Director and DJ Bruce Warren have all heaped humble praise on Huffman. He has also caught the attention of Bill Sherman, an Emmy, Grammy, and Tony award-winning producer and composer (Hamilton, In The Heights, Sesame Street), as well as Michael Novick, the producer of Glee. In the meantime, on TV, Huffman has left an imprint as a composer and lyricist for Sesame Road, and writing songs for artists like Ed Sheeran and Leon Bridges. With plenty more ready to come, it seems to be 2023 will be an explosive year for Jake Huffman.
Huffman’s most recent single “Babe” was created when he was going down a rabbit hole of indie pop/rock/funk melodies. He explained that something about the hard-hitting syncopation and the bass lines really hit the spot. He needed to catch that energy and put his own twist on the genre. What’s cool and different about Babe is the how it feels haunted and dark. He has captured an 80s science fiction horror blended into a twisted dream like fantasy.
This standount song on the forthcoming EP, “Babe” will figuratively lurk through the shadows of your ears.
Thematically, “Babe” is left up to listeners to interpret however they want, letting the upbeat song speak for itself. Huffman didn’t want to cloud the energy of the song by trying to insert deeper meaning into the song or over-thinking the lyrics. He explained that some seemingly minor issues become more significant over time, and even now, when he listens back, he finds more nuance than he originally intended.
