NOT A BOYS NAME
Having spent the better part of the year writing new material and touring with Olympia and I Know Leopard, NOT A BOYS NAME now releases his brand new single, ‘Raise The Alarm’.
The new track with its infectious melody, solid bassline and pounding drum rhythm was co-written with Lucy Taylor (Dagny, Dua Lipa, Friendly Fires) and Ross James (Upsidedownhead) and performed by NOT A BOYS NAME aka Dave Jenkins Jr. on vocals, guitar, keys, drums and bass.
The well-known Sydney multi-instrumentalist produced ‘Raise The Alarm’ and invited legendary Paul McKercher (Ball Park Music, Andy Bull, Art Vs Science) to lend his mastery touch to mixing the track.
NOT A BOYS NAME openly says about the new single, “’Raise the Alarm’ came at a time when I felt trapped. Consumed by nothing. I desperately needed a change and was searching for the courage to take that first step into the unknown. The song is about finding the catalyst to shake you up and take you where you want to go. It’s so easy to get stuck in a complacent place, a burning room. It’s so easy to say, this is fine. This song is about learning to say it’s not.”
‘Raise The Alarm’ follows previous single releases ‘Hazard Perception Test’ and ‘Cut It Off’ which garnered support from triple j, Radio Adelaide, RRR and FBi Radio, notable playlists on Spotify and Apple Music plus influential taste-making sites such as Pilerats, Happy Mag, Futuremag, Purple Sneakers, AU Review and Almost Real.
