Free Download: New Jape Double A-Side

Rejoice, Jape are finally back with new material! This double A-side is taken from the Ocean of Frequency LP, which is due for release in September. 

‘Hands Of Fire’ has been a mainstay in Richie’s live shows for some time and its thumping, swirling core sounds just as impressive here. The introduction of a few glitchy riffs and backing vocals is masterfully done though, further highlighting Richie’s nous in terms of production and arrangement. 

‘Lying On A Death Bed’ on the other hand is a quiet, nostalgic ramble through adolescence in the mid 80’s. There’s always been something special about Richie’s ability to draw on the everyday with a special eye and this is particularly evident here as he references everything from first meeting his wife to shunning secondary school for a band “with an awful, awful name, who were so full of spunk”. Who else could make that sound so heartfelt?
