Leifur James - A Louder Silence (LP)
Producer and multi-instrumentalist Leifur James is set to release his debut album A Louder Silence on 5th October 2018 through Late Night Tales artist label Night Time Stories. A Louder Silence is threaded by nuanced electronic instrumentals with influences of jazz and blues. Rich, soulful vocals and piano are used sparingly; making way for cascades of dubby synths, ambience and moody jazz breaks. Released in 2017, debut single Time was described as the most exciting music in a decade by BBC Radio 6 Music DJ Guy Garvey. XLR8R has written of his uncanny ability to deliver emotional cuts, Stamp The Wax called him an exciting prospect and a live session for Gilles Peterson's Worldwide FM heard tracks from the album given their first airing.
