BBC Introducing’s singer Jamie Light is proud to unveil debut single LIES, released independently via his own label, Ninth Park Records
The self-penned and produced track immediately stands out with its catchy hook and Jamie’s soulful vocals laid over glitchy electro beats—stemming from the singer’s love of electro music and the R&B/soul he has been influenced by since his early years.
“I always wanted to mix glitch elements with R&B to give my music a unique vibe and the result was ‘Lies’, which I wrote about a previous situation”, Jamie says of the track. “The song is about confronting the demise of a turbulent relationship and moving on when you can no longer gain anything from being in it.”
“Dark and glitchy R&B. One of my favourite discoveries this week… Grabbed me almost immediately. File next to Gallant, Frank Ocean and Usher” – BBC Radio, Abbie McCarthy
“Three and a half minutes of blissful yet fractured R&B, combining Light’s soft and emotive vocals and crisp sounding, glitch ridden electro” – Vulture Hound
‘Lies’ is the first single to be taken from Jamie Light’s forthcoming debut EP, RITUALS, scheduled for release in June.
