James Gillespie has returned with his new single “Dead In The Water” – a hypnotic, stripped-back piano melody with a chorus that unwinds and uncoils beautifully that has already picked up support from Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’. Listen here
James’ comet-like entrance into the musical ether last year has seen him headline a sold-out Lexington and drop a uniquely unorthodox version of P!NK’s “Don’t Let Me Get Me” that the superstar heard and demanded he perform with her at V Festival.
Speaking on the track, James states: “It’s about knowing you’ve fallen before you do, the feeling that you will carry on floating aimlessly without that love. In this case, its a forbidden one – that you both want but can’t have. I produced it with Mike Spencer, whose studio’s in the middle of a wood; it definitely captured a moment, turning off the lights and recording vocals using only the light coming through the trees.”
