Behind the Song: Jake Bugg: Fire

Jake Bugg’s “Fire” belongs in a post-apocalyptic video game like “Fallout.”

Because when the world finally dines upon its own innards for the last time, you’d hope a song like this is one of the only things left.

Hauntingly beautiful, the 18-year-old Bugg’s simple guitar work and heart on a sleeve lyrics and vocals prove that fantastic music doesn’t need bells and whistles.

It just needs soul. Something this song is filled to the brim with. Ironically enough, this song was recorded on Bugg’s iPhone. There’s no reverb, no fancy studio work. Bugg is just a dude with a guitar and a story to tell.
