Jake Bugg Is Surrounded by Words in 'Two Fingers' – Premiere

Rolling Stone

Jake Bugg's "Two Fingers" is a jangly, twangy folk-pop tune with plenty of bright spirit, despite the lyrical story of domestic violence from a kid's perspective. In the new video for the track, a lonely young boy finds words all around him, from car lights and shoes to road signs and mirrors. He also plays around with his sister, and escapes into his own solace in the woods, a graveyard and with his toys. But there's an unsettling layer that suggests the boy and his sister are running away from something terrible at home. Thankfully, the kid still finds beauty all around him. "Two Fingers" is on Jake Bugg's debut album, Jake Bugg, which is due out April 9th.
