Ones To Watch: Jake Bugg
"New single 'Lightening Bolt' is two-and-a-half-minutes of white heat. A driving riff sets the track going before a searing electric guitar line ignites the track.""Lightning Bolt" follows on the heels of Jake Bugg's debut track, "Trouble Town," an introspective song that tells his story of growing up on the Nottingham estates and being a teenager in that world. Inspired by golden oldies like Bob Dylan and Glen Campbell and current chart toppers like Wiz Khalifa, Jake Bugg is an artist to keep your eye on.
With a BBC Culture slot already under his belt and plays from Zane Lowe on Radio 1, Jake Bugg is generating buzz left and right back at home. Other radio support has come from Fearne Cotton and Huw Stephens. Jake has already supported talent like Lana Del Rey and Example and was announced as the main support act on Michael Kiwanuka's recent UK and European tour.
