Moving Out: Bathe Alone and Jake Huffman

Bathe Alone and Jake Huffman

Jake Huffman – Vampires In Hippie Clothes

Genre: Alt Pop

Jake Huffman uses the latest single to lay a warm bed for all of the nostalgia and regrets that have nested in his soul. 

Most musical artists believe that they’ll be a day when their adventure in the music world will end. It’s enough to keep some of them off at night, either staring at the ceiling or rewriting their best songs. It’s enough to make some take their studies seriously and forget about wanting to turn their pop stardom into lasting careers. 

This is, of course, true for most performers. But not for all of them. There are some legendary musicians who worked until the day that they were taken from us. There is a minority for whom the cruelty of the pop star lifecycle never applied. But even they had their worries. And, make no mistake about it, these worries seeped into their music. 

Jake Huffman’s “Vampires In Hippie Clothes” is a young man’s lament in which the singer is entertaining the idea that all those days spent out in the glimmer of stage lights may have been in vain. It’s a warm, trendy pop sound about festival grounds, the modern equivalent of the circus tent. And while the Sun shines in Huffman’s flashbacks, distress lights can also be spotted. 


Bathe Alone – Missionary Ridge

Genre: Lo-fi Rock, Indie Rock, Dream Pop

Bathe Alone treats melancholy as a gift that, when used properly, can greatly enhance an individual’s life. 

People across the world spend small fortunes on therapy. And, make no mistake about it, for many, these sessions lead to colossal personal development. But, for others still, this leads to a kind of addiction. When is the right time to cut loose from the person providing the therapy, and how to achieve a similar result on your own? 

Strangely, modern music has rarely been integrated among the tools used for therapy. Perhaps the results would just be too strong. Because as familiar as pop sounds are, they can, in the right environment, light up memories like no other thing and pave a road toward the future. It’s one of the only ways in which we can stare back into the past. 

Bathe Alone’s “Missionary Ridge” sounds like a day spent alone, in bed, reminiscing. The dreamy pop sounds create the backdrop on which listeners can project their own memories. This is pop music about acknowledging the past in order to move forward.
