Single Serving Premiere: Jake Troth's Skittish Pop Anthem
    • MONDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2013

    • Posted by: Jake Saunders

    I always respect a musician who isn't afraid to cross genres. Jake Troth found his beginnings in a local North Carolina death metal band called Glass Casket with whom he recorded an album during his high school years. Now Troth boasts collaborations with Big Boi and Kylie Minogu, and his solo debut, Double Black Diamond. The album covers a lot of ground, combining catchy pop hooks with hip hop inspired beats, often switching between the two. Producing all his own songs, Troth possesses a commendable amount of creative control over his music.

    The track "Give It All", which we're premiering today, is an example of the more anthemic side of Troth's writing. A driving pulse carries the song, beginning with acoustic guitar and evolving into an unforgiving chorus: "You say you want it, but I don't think you want it enough...You say you need it, but I don't think you need it enough..." The song is topped off with a cool underwater section, with an imaginative trumpet solo (at least what I think is a trumpet). All together a solid pop song delving into the struggles of love and identity.
