ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No.292 - James Humphrys

Having spent the last few years releasing a breadth of bold and exciting indie-pop belters, Bristol-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist James Humphrys has now returned to deliver the first taste of his forthcoming new EP, 'Colour'.

Taken from his upcoming new collection 'Memory Place', ‘Colour’ was written at sea off the coast of Alaska while he was working as a musician on a cruise ship, and sees the frontman blend a heady mix of soul, jazz and indie on this bouncing new delight. Inspired heavily by the sounds of Foals, Parcels and Bombay Bicycle Club, his latest offering looks set to be one of his best loved releases to date.

Speaking about his new cut, James said, “'Colour' explores the themes and thoughts surrounding that uncomfortable feeling you get when you’re in a group and you see a close friend putting on a false persona through the colour of their words. You can see through the mask because you know them so well and you can’t understand why they do it.”.

His new EP 'Memory Place' is set to land on the 10th July and you can check out the new single 'Colour' in the player below.
