Description

James about JACOB with Lucyoutloud.com. “JACOB is a transparent account of my own journey over the last three years. The songs beginning formed from being heavily impacted by the biblical story of Jacob wrestling with God to receive a new name. However that story stuck with me and evolved, showing me how I could personally relate and how I had to have a similar experience myself to really believe.”

Music Producer: Paul Mckercher

Coming from the southernmost point of the Australian continent, the Tasmanian indie rock band Lyke Giants are excited to unveil their brand new single "Jacob" today. Collaborating with Paul Mckercher (The Vines, Sarah Blasko, Papa vs. Pretty), the trio are expanding their body of work with more indie-rock sounds and atmospheric vibes with the new track. "Jacob" is a slow-burner that reflects an affinity to Jacob in the biblical story of Jacob, when he wrestles with God to receive a new name. The track continually builds until landing to explode in a mass of musical tension, growing with a chanting vocal declaration to saturate the listener in a spacious soundscape.

 The video builds along with the music, focusing on a man slowly ambling through a vastly wide shot occupied by a desert scenescape. 

"...the vocal delivery ranges from delicate to dominant, in the same way that the verses fuse a delicate guitar riff with a gritty bass line" - Ground Sounds

The band has been on an upward curve since their debut album in 2013, gaining blog love from around the world and even more success recently with their release in August, “Let Up”. Back home in Australia Lyke Giants have also thrived, performing at The Falls Festival multiple times and supporting bands such as British India and Faker. The new single is a follow-up to “Spite”, which focused on a steady and dense groove that drives the song, enabling the listener to jump right in from the outset. Its layers of seemingly contrasting tones all gel to form a soft to gritty, thick, and spacious track.

"Jacob" by Lyke Giants is out now via a self release!
