Artist: Jake Evans
Label: Vita Records, 2014
The second single of Bad Lieutenant. After the era of playing in a band alongside New Order's Bernard Sumner and featuring Stephen Morris, also Blur's Alex James, this single is going to be on his solo work.
'This Is Life' is a guitar highly based song with dancy drumbeat as an alternative rock/pop/indie-rock kind of music. The sonic soundscape layering behind the strong vocal from him notably strengthen the character of the song itself. Bernard Sumner described Jake’s debut single as “triumphant”, Xfm’s Clint Boon declared that “it doesn’t get much better than this”, how about you, on this one?
