Over the last few months US artist Jake Daniels has given us a few cool singles while also making promise of a whole new ep coming our way soon – turns out soon is now!
It’s called “Obsessed” and it is a tidy six-track collection of his alternative/indie-pop sound & style, and as he reveals below it’s based on the storyline of a relationship between two toxic individuals, which I’m sure a few of us can relate to!
“Obsessed” follows the storyline of a relationship between two, dare I say, toxic individuals. The main character finds himself infatuated with the other person, and gets addicted to their fling, undefined-style relationship quickly, but finds himself wanting more with every subsequent visit and interaction. The other party doesn’t want to commit to anything serious, and it becomes an issue over time between them, where the initial person starts to become so attached, it starts bordering obsession.
It’s meant to deep dive and mirror the fling-style relationship trend that is happening now in our generation. Although not everyone goes through it this way, it’s becoming more common to just date who you want when you want, no commitment involved. I don’t necessarily agree or disagree with it, but wanted to bring light to what that could feel like between the two people involved, from my perspective.” – Jake Daniels
