2020 album. Also available on CD.
London based experimental producer and composer, Leifur James announces his return with the release of his highly anticipated second album ‘Angel in Disguise’. Driving, melancholic electronica, the first single “Wise Old Man” is a nod to what can be expected of James’ second album, showcasing a more experimental side to his production. Traversing through musicality, progressive synths and introspection, this first single unveils the producer’s distinct sound with disorientated vocals; speaking of the interplay between reason and emotion, the lyrics repeat “Wise old man in my brain, soul bursting through my veins”, opening the gates to this captivating electronically steered opus.
This news comes after an incredible few years for the artist. 2018 saw James release his esteemed debut album ‘A Louder Silence’ which captured the attention of key tastemakers including Resident Advisor, Pitchfork, Mixmag, Electronic Sound and Future Music UK.
‘Angel In Disguise’ promises to explore the themes of love and loss through a masterful blend of harmonic vocals from James himself, nuanced electronic soundscapes and vibrant percussion - punctuated by bespoke visuals, directed by Balázs Simon. This exciting project is expected to make waves and see James step up, exhibiting his discerning ear and painstakingly honed production craft.
