Jarryd James: Sure Love
For those also on the endless search for new music, the task can sometimes entail hours of fruitless sifting. Other times the sounds find you and are all the more rewarding. This morning found me going through e-mails in bed as light slipped through the cracks in the shades, and there it was: Jarryd James' "Sure Love."
Having recently familiarized myself with his velvety cover of Weezer's "Say It Ain't So", news of new material was enough to pull me from the sheets and find my headphones. Delicately brushed keys met my ears –reminiscent of fellow Aussie, Chet Faker– before being wrapped in the embrace of a warm bass and a loosely rattling tambourine. It's a gently rocking tune that is as fitting for your morning coffee as it is kicking back with a cold one.
James has disclosed little on the topic of when we can expect his full-album, Thirty One, in the States but we do have an EP to look forward to sometime in September. In the meantime pre-orders for the album's Australia release (via Dryden Street) are available here.
