Single Review – Jake Bugg – Gimme The Love

Nottingham’s Jake Bugg has seemingly delivered on the more funk-inspired album he was promising everyone with this second single from his upcoming third studio album On My One. ‘Gimme the Love’ has a 90’s Acid House-style drum sample with an escalated, rumbling bass line. The sharp riffs simply fall from this simple, but infectious arrangement. Jake’s sort of half sung rap actually suits his vocal style rather well and the song on the whole functions as an energetic piece of pop; not a hugely creative affair, but one that carries out its function brilliantly. It certainly makes his June 17th album a more interesting prospect.
