SPB: When did you start thinking about the name change (from Jake & The Jellyfish) and how did you decide that now is the time?
Jake: To be honest we’d been talking about changing it from the word go. It was only ever a “hold” name, but we just played more and more shows and the name became more and more known so it never got changed. When we were recording these new songs it felt like the evolution of the sound of the band had really cemented itself and we’d changed a fair bit as a band from its inception, so we just thought we’d do it. We’ve been pretty stoked with how it’s been received to be honest, as I was super worried about it, but it’s only been positive!
