Millions of kids grow up with aspirations to become a world-renowned musician, or an all-star athlete. When Jake Germany, better known as Phangs, was faced with the decision to continue his collegiate soccer career or hit the studio, the indie-pop rocker decided music was his fate.
The Nashville singer/songwriter has since blended electric-pop with his alternative roots, trademarking his unhurried yet spirited style with lush vocals. His two recent singles “Tanlines” and “When I’m All Alone” evoke the nostalgia of a summer night; a preview of what’s to come with the release of his debut album on Friday.
Today we’re providing you with a sneak peak of “One Good Reason,” a track about continuing to let a lover back in after being disappointed time and time again. A vexed Phangs demonstrates his clever wordplay in the liberating track, chanting “better quit while I’m behind.”
While this is just the appetizer, we’re excited to sink our teeth into Phangs’ new album out Friday.
