CloudKid Presents Jake Daniels - Obsessed EP
Culminating Jake Daniels’ road with and under CloudKid is the impact single of his largest body of work to date, eponymous to his EP’s title: ‘Obsessed.’ The alt-pop track is the last chapter of the series whose narrative arc involves two characters whose quest for love is a rollercoaster ride of big emotions, soundtracked by Daniels’ use of emotive sounds and compelling, narrative-based storytelling that he is making his staple.
He says of the song and its underlying themes, “‘Obsessed’ follows the storyline of a relationship between two, dare I say, toxic individuals. The main character finds himself infatuated with the other person, and gets addicted to their fling, undefined-style relationship quickly, but finds himself wanting more with every subsequent visit and interaction. The other party doesn’t want to commit to anything serious, and it becomes an issue over time between them, where the initial person starts to become so attached, it starts bordering obsession.” He continues, “It’s meant to deep dive and mirror the fling-style relationship trend that is happening now in our generation. Although not everyone goes through it this way, it’s becoming more common to just date who you want when you want, no commitment involved. I don’t necessarily agree or disagree with it, but wanted to bring light to what that could feel like between the two people involved, from my perspective.”
