It’s hard to believe that 23-year old English crooner Jake Bugg could have a sincere grasp on life, love, and heartbreak. However, Bugg quickly puts to rest any doubt with his sonically dynamic emotional rollercoaster. What Bugg does best is to explode the folk genre into a precocious puzzle that is equal parts accessible and unique. With a few chart-topping albums under his belt, his latest record, 2017’s Hearts That Strain explores his established brokenhearted everyman narrative — this time with a harder edge and, of course, his signature velveteen vocals.
