Singer, actor, multi-instrumentalist and producer Jake Hays juggles many roles. With all those hats, it can be especially difficult to deal with heartbreak and its dramatic aftermath. His latest infectious single, “Tattoo,” details ways to cope with the despair, like getting a tat to ease the pain. The bold offering highlights static bass and syrupy, smooth vocals. Oozing with an unapologetic attitude, he sings of being lucky for dodging a bullet. “I bet it looks pretty dim where you are/ dyed your hair the color black like your heart/ I’ve been told of all the shit you tried to start.” The track’s intensity evokes dark Billie Eilish vibes.
For the southern California native, music runs through his veins. Hays truly found his love for music at 13 and by 19 he was touring professionally. The indie/pop-rock talent has worked with many icons. He has even collaborated with his mother Cherie Currie of The Runaways. Previously in the beloved band Maudlin Strangers, his current work has that same haunting air. Take a listen to “Tattoo” and forget your toxic ex.
