Premiere: Matt Jaffe – Overboard


matt jaffe

San Francisco’s 20-year-old rock prodigy Matt Jaffe has a new song out today called “Overboard.” Jam-packed with power chords and and driven by Jaffe’s distinct voice, “Overboard” is peak classic rock (with a touch of a punk edge) from someone not legally old enough to drink. Check it out below.

Here’s what Jaffe had to say about the new track:

“Overboard” was inspired by the kind of acerbic writing found on early Elvis Costello records. It was a deliberate attempt to write hooky hooks.  I recall the moment when the chorus popped in my head at a college ice hockey game. I quickly found a quiet(er) space and mumbled the melody into my phone.  I hate my iPhone, but it comes in handy at such times.  I think I missed a few goals on account of this.
