1 min read

Jamie 4 President gifts us with a tantalizing preview of their forthcoming album, “It Bites,” marking their fifth release to date. Once again, they join forces with the renowned Barcelonabased label, BCore, to bring us a track that encapsulates their distinctive sound. Comprised of Jamie R.Green on vocals and guitar, Pablo Gonzalez on drums, and Borja Pérez on bass, the band’s latest offering, “Cobwebs,” showcases their ability to blend effervescent melodies reminiscent of bands like Teenage Fanclub, The Shins, and Guided By Voices, with an intimate touch reminiscent of Elliott Smith or early Death Cab for Cutie.

In a departure from their previous works, “Cobwebs” adorns itself with the synthesizers reminiscent of the ’80s, while sporting a more audacious production, courtesy of Santi García, with whom they have once again collaborated. Reflecting on the track’s evolution, Jamie shares,

“My original demo was just acoustic guitar and vocals, but in the studio, we gave it a much more expansive dimension, envisioning how it would sound in a movie from our childhood. The lyrics speak to following our own path despite the obstacles that come our way and pursuing what truly matters in life. It also addresses the fact that hangovers hurt more and more.”

The lyrics of “Cobwebs” resonate with a profound message of resilience and determination. They remind us that while life may present challenges, we have the power to shape our own destinies and defy the expectations imposed upon us. With a soulful and introspective tone, the song captures the essence of navigating the complexities of adulthood while holding onto the dreams and aspirations of youth.


“They’ll always tell you life is what you make it. That don’t mean you’ve got to sit there and just take it, and soak up all the bullshit they throw at you,” sings Jamie, encapsulating the defiant spirit that pervades the track. The verses delve into themes of disillusionment, societal pressures, and the yearning for a life that feels authentic. The words weave together a narrative of individuals grappling with the weight of expectations while seeking solace in their own unique journeys.

With its infectious melodies and poignant lyrics, “Cobwebs” invites listeners on a journey of introspection and self-discovery. Jamie 4 President masterfully intertwines elements of nostalgia, resilience, and authenticity, creating a track that resonates on multiple levels.
