CloudKid Presents Jake Daniels - Drop The Match
Featuring a dance pop instrumental and a heavy baseline reminiscent of previous Jake Daniels tracks, ‘Drop The Match’ is a mix between an alternative pop and a dance club record that either way will have listeners moving and grooving along to its catchy beat and vocal melody. Daniels says the song is meant to represent the relieving feelings after solving an inner problem with a significant other, partner or friend.
He continues, “The track is a thriller style, love story where the main character is talking to two people at once. The woman in the story finds out, ties the other to a tree, pours gasoline and sets the other on fire. It’s pretty gruesome and extreme, very messed up like the songs I usually end up writing. However, though the narrative is thriller, soap-opera type of reference, there’s a deeper meaning: the fire is meant to represent the anger humans may feel from betrayal, while the match represents the decision we choose to make moving forward. In this case, she’s so angry, she has to set the other person ablaze. I think that’s how many of us feel if we’re in a similar, messy situation and what we wish we could do when something like this happens to us (even if we don’t do it — and I’m not condoning it, either).”
