Track: Jaws The Shark – Lately

Rob Crawford

Multi-instrumentalist Jaws The Shark (real name Olly Bailey) has shared his new single, ‘Lately.’ The track is taken from his forthcoming album, ‘Wasteland,’ which is due out on July 19th.

Olly explains, 

“I wrote Lately about giving up a job that I’d fallen out of love with for various reasons, but it was a job that had given me so much; allowed me to travel the world, meet amazing people and made me the person I am today. Without it, I wouldn’t even be in a position to be releasing my own music. Despite all of that, I felt an overwhelming compulsion to go it alone and blaze my own trail. I knew that if I were to give it up there would be no going back, but the draw of wanting to prove myself to myself was a path that I knew I needed to go down to see where it lead. I’m currently on that path and not knowing where it leads is both the best and worst part about it!”

A slab of punk chords, glorious harmonies, and whip-sharp vocals. Bailey has this style nailed down and made it his own, such is the power of his songwriting. His last couple of singles is just setting the scene for one of this summer’s best albums.
