Lonely The Brave’s ex frontman Dave Jakes has announced his return to music!
The former frontman has released his amazing new track ‘Been In My Dream’ which is going to be part of his self-titled debut mini record, set to be released on December 11th – 2020 via By The Time It Gets Dark.
“I began recording the EP a couple of years back with Matty Moon – who I knew from his work with Lonely The Brave,” he explains. “I think initially we were looking at a simpler, acoustic sounding record but as we went on we found the more we layered on to it, the better and better it was sounding.
“I’d always wanted to write some music with a female vocalist involved so having Melissa Baker and Grace Kuhl on the record was really rewarding. I was also very lucky to have Jamie and Rachel from The Last Dinosaur featuring, as well.
“For the last few years now I’ve been living in a mobile home in the Cambridge fens, which is where I recorded a lot of the vocals. I recorded those for half of the songs around a year and a half before I recorded the vocals for the second half. It’s quite interesting to hear how different my singing voice sounds in the first recordings when I was smoking a lot! The rough throat works quite well with the earlier songs but I’m glad my smoking days are now gone.
“The EP features songs about doomed relationships (Caterwaul), workplace bullying (Echelon), family breakdowns (Be The Apple) and one of my favourite subjects to sing about – dinosaurs (Diggy’s Pushing Holes Out).”
