So that's what's happened with Jacob Golden, a guitarist who has just had his latest album, Revenge Songs, come out.
Over at CD Times, he talked about what influences his lyrics and he had this to say:
Here's the video for Jacob Golden's first single, "Out Come the Wolves" from Revenge Songs:I kind of go though different phases with reading. I was reading a lot of Haruki Murakami when I was writing the last album. I find that the way he writes suggests he listens to a lot of music, conversely. He’s a big music fan and talks a lot about it in his books. I’m filling my head with different writers all the time.
I think I can see the song becoming the soundtrack for some of Murakami's short stories or even several scenes in his novels.
