Melbourne rising star Jake Marra has released his latest single "Medicine". A pulsating, hard-hitting pop banger, the track revolves around codependency and relying on someone else for one's happiness.
Co-written with and produced by Ben Oldland, "Medicine" is a perfect, seamless pop masterpiece, and a wonderful re-introduction to an artist who has already begun to make a name for himself in the Australian music scene.
On the track, Marra says: "Having someone you enjoy being around is great, but when you can't handle being on your own and become addicted to another person, you're in big trouble...Realising I could channel my pain into catchy pop songs was the best discovery I've ever made."
After spending five years on the indie music radar, Marra has found his sound and is ready to carve out a path as one of Australia's most exciting pop artists. His 2015 mashup of Justin Bieber's "What Do You Mean?" and Ariana Grande's "One Last Time" made waves and received attention worldwide from Billboard, MTV, Teen Vogue and even Grande herself.
With performances at Wine Machine 2019 and with Disco Faith Choir, Marra has proven time and again that he has an audience ready and waiting for his music. His magnetic and funky debut single "The Day That You Left" received praise from Music Feeds, Tone Deaf, PileRats, AusPop and triple j Unearthed, kicking off what is sure to be an exciting 2020 for Marra. This explosive follow up has proven just what the hype is all about.
