Imagine this… A young 20 something man with a notebook full of songs and dreams, sells everything he owns and declares that he’s moving from small-town Adelaide in Australia to London, in pursuit of rock and roll glory. Fast forward a couple of months, and that same young man scurries home with his tail between his legs after being chewed and spat out by the freezing cold, dog eat dog metropolis that is London.
‘UKOK?’ is a song that documents these experiences first hand whilst cheekily making light of the situation. The video, which was shot on location and directed by Jacob in July 2012 – is the first time that Jacob has returned to London since that fateful experience in 2006, and this time it seems that Jacob has the upper hand. This video has it all – it’s an incredibly fast paced and accurate depiction of the bustling urban centre, and Jacob isn’t afraid to show London for what it really is…beyond the bright lights and beautiful landmarks, London really can be an incredibly lonely place. Now living in Melbourne, UKOK? is Jacob’s second single taken from his forthcoming debut album Reason.
