Singer and musician Jonathan Young released his brand new single “Jetpack Race” ahead of his new album Starship Velociraptor. He performs the song with the band Galactikraken, “the Best Band in the Universe” and “NOT just Jonathan Young pretending to be several aliens from the future.”
First off, I got to mention the music video, an animated sequence made by 64 Bits, a studio from the Netherlands. It had a really cool cyberpunk vibe, showing a man trying to get through his day job before signing up for “jetpack racing” with a discount jetpack. It was smooth, neat, and went with the song perfectly.
As for the song, it is definitely cool. Young is known for doing epic covers on his YouTube channel and Spotify, but his original music is just as noteworthy. “Jetpack Race” has videogame vibes and hype lyrics that will have you bumping your fist all the way until the end. If this is a taste of his new album, then I for sure cannot wait to see what is next for Galactikraken.

Great review. I’m very excited for the full album. This song has a really cool vibe where it makes me feel almost nostalgic for some Sega Genesis Jetpack Racing game that never actually existed. It taps into what I love about the musical composition style of classic video games, with the driving energy of a punky metal song, and the sing-a-longability of a pop song.
