Video Premiere: Jacob Jeffries Band, ‘Suffocate My Heart’

Things are not what they seem at Jacob Jeffries’ band practice.

We don’t even know where to begin with Jacob Jeffries Band other than to say that we’re INSTA-STANS. The South Florida pop-rockers just released Tell Me Secrets, their fourth studio album, and it’s already garnering crazy buzz from fans AND from famous people! The band’s piano-driven rock sound (think Gavin DeGraw meets Ben Folds) has made a fan out of Dashboard Confessional‘s Chris Carrabba who, in a recent article called Jacob ”incredible.” NBD, whatsoever. If for some strange reason that hasn’t gotten you fully revved, then how about the fact that the band recorded a sick cover of Justin Bieber’s “Boyfriend”? Because that happened, and it’s amazing and you should watch it. Twenty times, at least.

So, without further hyperbolic ado (because I know we’re prone to histrionics, especially where cute boys are concerned) we’re in love with Jacob Jeffries Band’s brand-new video, “Suffocate My Heart.” (Sorry. Being effusive again.) The single-take video show the boys in band rehearsal happily performing their new song. The dudes are all “look how excited I am to be playing my instrument!” which actually works perfectly with the record’s aw-shucks, happy go-lucky vibe. Oh, but next thing we know, we’re witnessing a borderline private moment where Jacob hops into bed and tries to seduce this chick (hi, jealous). But things return to PG status when confetti magically falls from the sky, and band practice turns into a huge dance party. Because that’s the kind of magic that happens when Jacob Jeffries hits on you. Not that we’d know from personal experience, but we’re more than willing to volunteer. Just putting that out there.
