We were huge fans of emerging talent Jake Giles’s musical debut Cold Body which was released back in 2020, now the singer returns with the track’s follow-up, Quarterback. The track conjures up nostalgia of growing up queer, blending this with the woozy imagery of the hunky quarterback and life in a rural American high school.
“Quarterback, I’ll keep this close, Nobody has to know, Quarterback, Let’s play pretend, I’ll say you’re just a friend…” Jake sings capturing the longing felt between a football star and gay admirer. Packed with a production style that feels like a heartfelt mid-noughties pop-rocker, Jake sells the narrative with an impressive conviction and genuine winsome nostalgia.
