about

“Think disco! Imagine you’re dancing with the sexiest person you’ve ever met!” Jake Downs’s odd yet surprisingly effective performance instructions for the string quartet on his new single demonstrate why his lush, orchestral pop is already gaining a cult following. Crave is the sound of a young man with an emotional maturity far beyond his nineteen years. Using his classical training to bring together an eclectic range of influences from Gregorian chant to One Direction, his second single is intense, euphoric and filled with raw emotion.
