ALBUM REVIEW: JAKE BUGG – ON MY ONE

jakebugg770

Background
English singer-songwriter who has found success in the last 5 years with channeling classic pop-rock styles.

Strengths
A firm grasp of the past and present in terms of song expression. Not strictly retro and not strictly modern either, Bugg finds the sweet spot between the two. His nasal vocals represents another break from current norms, following more classic rock singers than the smooth soul crooners of modern day. Songwriting is an asset throughout as Bugg explores a wide range of British pop-rock influences all the while maintaining melodic quality as a top priority.

Highlights
“On My One”, “Gimme the Love”, “Love, Hope & Misery”, “The Love We’re Hoping For” and “Livin’ Up Country”.

Sounds Like
Alex Turner, King Charles, Arctic Monkeys, Miles Kane.

Bottom Line
The great hope of good old fashioned British songwriters continues to deliver on his promise.
