CloudKid Presents Jake Daniels - Creep
New York-based Jake Daniels is back with a song name that was made all too famous by the classic and acclaimed, Radiohead. Daniel’s version on the other hand has a slightly different meaning, the build up on the chorus and the main guitar playing throughout the song acting as a sonic representation of the main character of the narrative reaching a breaking point. Shying away from his previous release with CloudKid, ‘Liar,’ which is more romantic, more of a major pop, radio friendly tune, ‘Creep‘ leans toward being more rock oriented in nature, with hints of EDM and dark pop involved. ‘Creep‘ also feels distant at the outset —and grows closer as it goes— with a slow tempo building up and engaging listeners as they move throughout.
In very Jake Daniels fashion, ‘Creep‘ also includes storylike, screenplay-esque lyrics, which were inspired by the writing style of notorious, supernatural fiction author, Stephen King. Daniels says, “I think this song has a very interesting storyline. ‘Creep‘ is about obsessive thoughts and mental illness. It tackles the story of friends who are two-faced and as a result, overwhelm the main character of the story that they are friends with, with crippling anxiety of which they don’t know how to handle. You can really hear the narrative matching the dark style and production of the song.”
