‘Tinfoil Boy’single is a tense, angst-ridden rocker which erupts into a dark, anthemic chorus. Written by Jamie and co-produced by longtime collaborator James Dring, ‘Tinfoil Boy’ was Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World on BBC Radio 1 and is already picking up great support from R1, BBC 6 Music and Radio X.
Jamie T, a five-time NME award winner, has established himself as one of the UK’s most unique songwriters, merging his punk, folk, ska and reggae influences. He has released three critically acclaimed Top 5 albums to date. His 2007 debut “Panic Prevention” earned him a Mercury Music Prize nomination, and his follow up 2009’s“Kings & Queens” shot to No 2 in the UK chart.
