Jake Bellows Learns to Love Again
The relationship between Omaha native Jake Bellows and music has been a love affair just as passionate and dysfunctional as any between real people. Fifteen years of fronting the legendary Omaha group Neva Dinova ended poorly, forcing Mr. Bellows to forsake music forever and make a clean start on the west coast. Old loves die hard however, and when a call out of the past came through, Mr. Bellows couldn’t resist.
Without straying too far from the singer-songwriter platform, New Ocean reveals battle scars a la his ex, Neva Dinova—no small amount of sentimentality on several toss away mope anthems, but overall the glimmering hope of renewed passion. New Ocean is the perfect end of summer soundtrack for younger recently minted singles struggling with what-might-have-been questions and those wizened few who’ve finally come to terms with their bad livers and broken hearts.
