Jake Frost spent his childhood growing up as a queer man in Taiwan and Peru; his new single ‘Undercover’ sees the NYU alum seeks to embrace his identity fully. It’s an emotive, passion fuelled track with a rousing hook – this is one you won’t want to miss.
“’Undercover’ is about falling in love with your straight best friend and the pain of unrequited love. It speaks of the harsh reality of being in the closet and having to pretend to be someone you’re not. In order to preserve the friendship, you feed into your predesigned gender role. You drink beer, you talk about girls and you bury that part of you that wants him a little deeper with every night out and every drink you have. And you convince yourself that it’ll pass, the pain will pass, the affection you have for him will pass, the abnormal phase of loving boys will pass and you’ll be normal again.” – Jake Frost
