Next up, we’re delving into the more dark and eerie side of the indie sound with Jake Huffman’s new single ‘Babe’. This combination of pop, rock and funk showcases his versatility as a solo artist. As the former drummer and lead vocalist of McLovins, Huffman brings his anthemic energy to a new level with his self-produced music. With hard-hitting syncopation and a haunting atmosphere, ‘Babe’ channels an 80s sci-fi horror vibe mixed with a twisted fantasy daydream. Huffman leaves the song’s meaning open for interpretation, allowing the feel-good music to speak for itself.
