Influenced by those 90s grunge-filled greats in Third Eye Blind and Green Day, Jake Cassman aka Drunken Logic has blended a multitude of genres together finely tuned by his songwriting prowess into crafting his new 5-track EP ‘An Awful Lot Of Nothing’. Cassman has shared the lead single ‘Born Mad’ available now.
“Born Mad” is my attempt to understand the mindset of someone who may go on to commit a mass
shooting — a uniquely American phenomenon that is at once profoundly shocking and no longer the least bit surprising. The narrator is a profoundly alienated and angry young man, someone who feels trapped by society’s expectation of him and his own definition of masculinity. This song is a headbanger, and I’m proud of it, but it should make you feel uncomfortable the deeper you listen to it — it still makes me uncomfortable, and I wrote the damn thing.”
Catchy punky guitars over a superb drum soundtrack back Cassman’s steady yet attitude filled vocals. It’s a nod to the past with a future facing sound and intelligent lyrics, wrapped up in a raw and simple package.
