Single Revew: Jake Aldridge – “When I’m Feeling Down feat. Ellie Jamison”

I’m always on the lookout for new and fresh artist to brighten my day. I recently came into contact with the music of Jake Aldridge and I can say I was pleasantly surprised. His new single “When I’m Feeling Down” is a combination of rap verses (via Jake) and pop choruses (sung by Ellie Jamison). Jake’s Suffolk accent gives a unique charm to his rap flow, and it works well against Jamison’s bright vocals.

The song itself is a celebration of friendship, the kind that is everlasting. In Aldridge’s words he wanted “to thank my best friend for always being there for me and I hope” the song “inspires others to be thankful for their true friends as well.” The lyrics which play off of this theme are easy to remember and make for a great radio single (the easier a song is to remember the more likely it is to chart).

The production of the song, from the instrumentation to the mixing (done by producer Johann Elliot), is done just right. There is a tendency for people these days, especially with pop songs, to over-produce the track. “When I’m Feeling Down” has just the right amount of effects to give it a good feel and nothing beyond that (which is a good thing).

If you want an upbeat song to give your day some needed sunshine, I suggest you check Jake Aldridge’s single out.
