LISTEN: Jamie xx ‘Girl’

Screen-Shot-2014-04-23-at-8.39

It was only last month that JAMIE XX released the lush, dreamy soundscapes of ‘Sleep Sound’, a B-side that had its listeners in an electro-lullaby daze.

Now, the UK’s Young Turks signed producer has premiered the other half of his ‘Girl’/’Sleep Sound’ single, ‘Girl’. Set for release in Australia on the 2nd of May, ‘Girl/’Sleep Sound’ is notably the DJ/producer/The xx member’s first solo release since 2011, when he made his solo debut single ‘Far Nearer’.

Albeit a contrasting, more upbeat counterpart to its predecessor, ‘Girl’ has its head-bop inducing bassline, muted leads and delicate vocal samples all swirled into a shimmery, sauntering melody that drives the track’s entirety. It’s nothing less of what’s expected from JAMIE xx, so the release of the ‘Girl’/’Sleep Sound’ single also raises even more interest for what and when there’s more solo releases to come from him.
