Jake Houlsby has always been drawn to the wilderness.
Perhaps it's his upbringing in the North East, just a few miles from England's most desolate vistas.
This sense of space has penetrated his songwriting, with that plaintive voice sat on top of lush, wide open chords.
With a new EP incoming Jake has decided to share new cut 'Vondelpark' on Clash, and it's inspired by that sense of wilderness.
Trembling notes of guitar set against those tender lyrics, it's one of Jake's most impressive documents yet.
Tune in now.
