Ginger Snaps has shared his latest alt-pop hit, ‘Attention Seeker’

It's a taster from his upcoming album. 

Ginger Snaps has shared his latest alt-pop hit, ‘Attention Seeker’.

Following on from early tunes ‘Anorak’ and ‘Modern Man’, it marks the first single from multi-instrumentalist, writer and producer Jay Brook’s forthcoming album, due in January of next year.

FFO Bad Sounds, Weezer, Beck and the like, ‘Attention Seeker’ centres on a theme of “maximum honesty”, Jay explains:

“In the height of all the momentum ’round my last single, I took a year out. I had nothing to say and didn’t want to cheat any audience I’d built by faking it.

“After some time producing other artists, I suddenly found the urge to write again. I stuck a post-it to my studio mirror that said ‘maximum honesty’ and this became the theme of the single and the forthcoming album.

“In ‘Attention Seeker’, I give my thoughts on this modern unquenchable thirst for social media attention and the impact of that on being an artist in 2020.”
