Jake Daniels returns with new single 'Stalker'
Despite only just delivering his stunning EP 'Obsessed' in March this year, fast-rising artist Jake Daniels is already getting back on the wagon to unveil his pulsing new single 'Stalker'.
Inspired by a diverse array of acts that include Jagwar Twin, Neoni and My Chemical Romance, 'Stalker' is a brilliantly raw and jangled approach to the pop-rock sound. With his own passionate voice layered amongst a raw and driven production from start to finish, he is certainly looking to make 2022 his biggest year yet.
Speaking about the new track, he said, “It tells a story about social media and real life bullies. The main character of the song feels like he’s being watched everywhere he goes. He gets picked on frequently by the same few bullies, and they’re always making remarks about him on social media and following his every move. Throughout the song, he finally reaches his breaking point, and starts a blog called ‘The Stalker,’ which describes in detail the bullies from his school dressed as villains in 3D character form, hinting at who’s who with character descriptions. The song goes into detail about how the main character feels, // you got your notifications on, you watch my stories to get you off // implying the bullies feed off of their own negative energy. There’s definitely a deeper message involved in the song, highlighting theproblems of internet bullying and its affects on others.”
Born and raised in a small city in upstate New York, with musically gifted parents and siblings, Jake’s artistic journey began early, and today that journey has garnered a few more companions to accompany him. With hundreds of millions of views and streams ranging across various platforms, spots on the top pop and alternative charts in his region, having only released music since 2019, Daniels has amassed a strong online presence across the world, due to his relatable lyrics and story-driven songwriting. His most viral and cinematic track 'Two Face' jolted his career, with Youtube’s animation and Gacha community welcoming it — and him — with open arms, making him go from small town hero to global spectacle in a matter of months.
