BERLIN (dpa) – Jake Pugh doesn’t seem to be lacking in courage. At the time of his advances, the 27-year-old was still considered a guitarist, but almost ten years later, the Briton relied primarily on synthesizers and electronic pitches. This makes the album “Saturday Night, Sunday Morning” a bold experience.

“I wanted to do something completely different than anything I’d done before,” Bog said in an interview with dpa. For example, the intro to the recently released single “Lost” sounds like “Bad Guy” by Billie Eilish if you listen to it for a while. Bugg sings of frustrated love, and celebrates in a painful frenzy of longing.
“Saturday Night, Sunday Morning” was produced by Steve Mac, who has worked with artists such as Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Robin Schulze. The 2013 album “Shangri La” was created with the successful producer Rick Rubin (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash). “Working with Steve couldn’t be any different than recording with Rick Rubin,” says Pogue.
It is up to the listener whether his flirtation with contemporary pop music will be successful in the end. Jake Bugg sure has a permanent place in playlists on the radio or in the club.
