REVIEW | Jake McMullen – Always EP (2015)
by Olga Knapinska
Generally and unfortunately, I am no good with posting about albums, EPs, and other kinds of longer releases on here. It takes so much time to emotionally go through something, and I honestly cannot imagine not checking out the release 100s times before featuring it on the blog – that’s why I’d rather listen to a single, and albums are somehow forgotten within my blogging world.
In this case, something’s different. Always EP by Jake McMullen jus had to appear on QB, no matter what.
I clearly remember how impressed I was when I listened to the titled-track from Always for the very first time. It was magical, I blogged about it. And I remembered this tune to this day. Together with ’If I Go’, these are the songs that defined Jake’s sound for me.
He perfectly captures all those peaceful, beautiful emotions, and I feel like I’ve just received an early birthday present – that’s how I feel about his newest EP. He’s managed to make a personal, almost private release, and I hope you’ll be more than happy to welcome his music into your home, just like I did – and it was the best thing that happened to me today.
