Is Jake Bugg Perfect?

The answer to the question is YES!

I've basically fallen in love with the 18 year old singer songwriter and all round lovely person (I am presuming he's lovely, of course he is look at him!!!)

Obviously heavily influenced by The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Oasis amongst others his music is folky indie guitary and dance alongy and especially his latest single 'Taste It' reminds me of Miles Kane. It's the sort of music you want to pretend you're Twiggy or Edie Sedgwick in the 1960s to and dance with lovely boys in sharp tailored suits.

His slower stuff like 'Someone Told Me' and 'Love Me the Way You Do' made me spend last night sitting, crying wondering why he isn't mine (we would be so great I'd look after him and we would have so much fun JUST LOVE ME PLEASE) whereas 'Taste It' and 'Lightening Bolt'are much faster dancier songs, still with fantastic lyrics.

He's probably one of the most exciting artists at the moment and I am so stoked to see him at Leeds Festival this August, even if I am slightly worried that I'll fall in love there and then and not be able to move or do anything ever again.

Saffron is currently available for free download from his website.
