Rocking us into a state of sheer tranquillity, Jak Lizard unveils his kaleidoscopic track, “Ride Home”. Partnered with a harmonious melody and warm, honeyed vocals, the track evokes all the familiar sentiments of finally returning to your home — whatever that may look like. As a head-bopping beat drops over a sparkling symphony, vintage reverbs play with the backing track— gently tickling at your subconscious. In doing so, “Ride Home” invites you to fully submerge into Jak’s hypnotic and safe soundscape.
In his own words, Jak explains, “’Ride Home’ is a song dedicated to the sense of belonging that we can attach ourselves to in the darkest of times. The refrain says ‘keep the light on, I’m coming right home’ as if to say that even in my weakest hour, there’s a sense of home in my heart that I hold onto. It keeps me grounded and lets me know there’s love as long as I believe in myself. A dedication to the physical and spiritual entities that make us all feel like we have made it home, safe and sound. Whether it’s a front porch light being on, or a friend from far away reaching out, we all get home in different ways, and all of them are worth celebrating.”
Providing another exemplar of the NYC artist’s addictive optimism and infectious positivity, “Ride Home” proves yet again how Jak’s buoyant beats and uplifting instrumentation can provide a space for introspection, meditation and a safe escape. Holding onto his ambition to use his sound to heal others, we can only hope to see whatever the rising star releases next.
