Piers James’ new track is an ode to ride-or-die love. It’s a breezy cut from his forthcoming EP ‘A Dying Breed Part II’ that sees the Ipswich born MC & vocalist channel the sensibilities of transatlantic artists like Duckwrth & Smino, sitting in the kind of lane previously only occupied this side of the pond by Jay Prince.
As James moves effortlessly from singing to rapping, the mellow, shuffling production centres around some Jazz guitar, an infectious bassline and Neptunes-esque percussion. Directed by Aboveground, the track’s video follows a young woman as she daydreams about an intense, passionate, ‘Queen & Slim’ style love affair. Stream below via YouTube.
