Jacob Fitzgerald Shares Indie-Pop Heartbreak Track 'Shame On You'
After releasing his stellar single ‘Muse’, Naarm/Melbourne-based indie-rock artist Jacob Fitzgerald returns with his latest offering in ‘Shame on You’ – produced by the artist himself and long-time friend/collaborator Brent Quirk, with mastering by George Georgiadis (Gang of Youths, The Vanns, Tyne James-Organ) at Little Wing Sound.
‘Shame on You’ is a fastidiously crafted slice of indie-pop, exploring the roller coaster ride of emotions amid a breakup. Aiming to capture these feelings sonically with its ever-evolving dynamics, the track opens with earnest vocals and airy synths, slowly building with its introverted verses, before arriving at its compellingly charged chorus. As the song closes out, a sombre bridge momentarily reflects on introspection; accentuating the imminently elevated choruses for a stunningly heartfelt finale.
Jacob describes the motivation behind the track:
“‘Shame on You’ is a heartbreak song through and through, and is based around those few days following a breakup. It captures the regret; the things we’d wished we’d said and the desperation. It’s essentially saying, ‘I know that I agreed we’d go our separate ways, but I was speaking opposites; I don’t want this… what am I without you?’”
Jacob and his band also traversed the Australian East Coast in August supporting Selfish Sons, performing six shows, which included stops in Naarm/Melbourne, Meanjin/Brisbane, Yugambeh/Tamborine, Yugambeh/Gold Coast and Eora/Sydney. He’s previously sold-out headline shows and supported the likes of The Delta Riggs, Fergus James and John Floreani (Trophy Eyes).
