Video: Jake Bugg – “Slumville Sunrise” (Acoustic)

posted by Oscar November 23, 2013

Jake Bugg released his latest album, Shangri La, earlier this week and the young Brit is already out on the road playing new cuts to help promote it. Bugg played a secret gig at Nottingham’s The Maze in early November and there he performed the track “Slumville Sunrise” with only his acoustic guitar and his vocals doing all the work.

The result is still pretty cool and you can see it in the video shown above.

Video: Jake Bugg – “Slumville Sunrise”

posted by Oscar October 21, 2013

Jake Bugg has released his latest video for his new single, “Slumville Sunrise” and the clip is weird and funny, to say the least. Like taking a page straight out of a book filled with British Comedy go-to bits, the video starts with Bugg running from police after stealing an engagement ring and then all sorts of other characters join in on the chase (sometimes in that comical “fast-forward” pace). Elvis impersonators, the most terribly produced sailing scene, and even a “granny swap.” This is just weird and so un-Bugg-like, but that’s part of what makes this video fun to look at.

I honestly never thought this is what the video would turn out to be like.

Jake Bugg – “Slumville Sunrise”

posted by Oscar October 17, 2013

Jake Bugg is set to release his newest album, Shangri-La (produced by Rick Rubin at his studios that inspired the album’s title), in November of this year and today he’s released a new look at it via Rolling Stone. The track is called “Slumville Sunrise” and it follows the Rock-ier sound heard on “Trouble Town” from his last album except with a more killer solo.
