Sometimes, the grim reality is that each day feels like a battle against yourself.
Having shared stages with icons like Duff McKagan of Guns N Roses, W.A.S.P., Metal Church, and Richie Ramone of the Ramones, electric artist Jay Luke has put in enough work to become a respected veteran. His resume speaks for itself; rooted in a wealth of experience, Jay Luke has continued to impress every time he graces us with a release. Although his musical journey has not always been straightforward, his earnest love for his craft has allowed him to thrive where others would not, brightly blazing his trail in the music industry.
Having been performing and writing music for two decades, Luke’s experience has enabled him to mature his sound in a way newcomers cannot. Crucially, as evidenced by his critically acclaimed album “Vandalized Memories,” Luke showed an increased artistic depth that is rare and precious. Although it’s somewhat easy to give a reflective feel to the album, it’s still more challenging to make that feeling genuine, and on “Vandalized Memories,” Jay Luke’s attempt to give a more personal feel to the album was a resounding success.
“You’ll Never Beat The Addiction” is a delicious throwback to the golden era of rock n’ roll. A powerful guitar and drums frame this angsty release, and a strange, nervous, yet angry energy permeates the song. “You’ll never beat, beat the addiction,” Luke sings, “I’m going to help you destroy your dreams,” impressively capturing the internal anguish that addiction brings. Add that to a striking, attention-grabbing video that sees Luke intensely sing into the camera from striking angles and beautiful yet abandoned industrial sites, and you’ve got a release that hits multiple senses in the best way possible.
Jay Luke’s latest release, “You’ll Never Beat The Addiction,” is a frank, honest take on the difficulty of breaking the cycle and setting yourself free.
