Head In The Clouds” follows BabyJake’s breakout singles, “Confidant,” “Blue Cellophane” and “MadHappySad,” as well as his collaborations with Dillon Francis, “You Do You” and “Touch,” released earlier this spring. Stay tuned for Don’t give me problems, give me wine out this Friday!

ABOUT BABYJAKE

Jake Herring, the artist who records as BabyJake, has a complicated relationship with music. Growing up in Fort Meyers, Florida, Herring first picked up the guitar when he was eight years old. By the time he was in high school, he was juggling a deep, somewhat private love of music with genuine enthusiasm for sports and partying with his friends. He didn’t feel like he fit in in any specific social group, and soon felt alienated. For solace, Herring turned to his dad’s folk records, favoring the low-key contemplative sounds that resonated with the sense of alienation that he was feeling. Though he maybe wasn’t conscious of it at the time, Herring was priming himself to be a sort of musical chameleon. Well versed in the building blocks of rock music, the intimacy of folk, and with an innate understanding of the rap and pop music he grew up around, he was constructing a well of disparate influences to draw from when he eventually made a serious go at a music career. After his freshman year of college, Herring dropped out and started writing songs as often as he could, debuting as BabyJake in 2019 with his viral single “Cigarettes on Patios,” which has accumulated over 35 million streams to date. Before too long, he had his first official body of work, which quickly evolved into a multifaceted career that currently involves a record label called daycare with an added merch/streetwear line and a budding career penning and producing songs with other artists. His seven-song debut EP, Don’t give me problems, give me wine, feels like the result of an artist older than his years, someone who has lived recklessly and loved hard and is ready to put it all on record.

PARADE OF LIGHTS

PARADE OF LIGHTS RELEASE NEW TRACK “TIDAL WAVES”

LISTEN HERE

Los Angeles-based alternative rock band Parade of Lights share their first new song of 2018, “Tidal Waves” [Astralwerks]: LISTEN HERE. Alt Nation, the first station to support and play Parade of Lights at the start of their career, premiered the track yesterday on their weekly Advanced Placement show.

“Tidal Waves” is the newest tease from Parade of Lights’ forthcoming sophomore album. Last year, they shared two new tracks, “Touch” and “Victorious,” which were met with praise from fans and critics alike. Baeblewrote, “‘Touch’ is charismatic in its hook-packed chorus and instrumentals that make you want to dance.” Earmilkcalled it “an ’80s tinged, synth and hook-laden tune that evokes visions of palm tree lined streets and Instagram-worthy sunsets.” Idolatoragreed, claiming “if you like Bleachers and WALK THE MOON, this is the song for you,” while also describing “Victorious” as “synth-drenched pop/rock with a giant hands-in-the-air chorus.”

Painting an artful pastiche of pop, alternative, shoegaze, and electronic, Parade of Lights have quietly become a phenomenon since the 2015 release of Feeling Electric. The title track featured in EA Sports’ FIFA 16 and racked up 4.8 million Spotify streams, while “Golden” cracked 8 million Spotify streams and played during high-profile spots for the Super Bowl®, NBC Winter Olympics, the Academy Awards®, and the GRAMMY® Awards. Meanwhile, they continue to make fans move on tour, having sold out numerous headline dates between sharing stages with Imagine Dragons, X Ambassadors, AWOLNATION, Fitz & The Tantrums, and more. Moreover, the band’s vision remains solely their own: not only do they write and produce their songs, but they also produce lyric videos and social content and even handle graphic design for online and merchandising.
