Jaymes Young - Fragments

If You Like: Mikky Ekko, The xx, Woodkid

Jaymes Young has been awfully hard to categorize. He has a poppy, soulful voice, but his tracks have so far ranged from smooth R&B croon, to dubby electronica, to poppy guitar-laden anthem. His latest hit is a chill, bass-heavy blanket of beautiful sadness. As he sings about a failed relationship, the musical backing  enhances the laid-back mood but keeps things intense with the exciting instrumentation. His eagerly-anticipated debut mixtape will be released on August 20th.
