London based experimental producer and composer, Leifur James announces his return with news of a six date EU tour and the release of Wise Old Man - the first single taken from his highly anticipated second album Angel in Disguise, which is due for release on the 24th April 2020 via Night Time Stories (sister label to the coveted LateNightTales). Driving, melancholic electronica, Wise Old Man is a nod to what can be expected of James second album, Angel In Disguise, showcasing a more experimental side to his production. Traversing through musicality, progressive synths and introspection, this first single unveils the producers 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 on Night Time Stories and follow up remix EP that championed upcoming electronic talent including Bruce, FaltyDL and Whities producer, Coby Sey, on rework duties; projects which captured the attention of key tastemakers including Resident Advisor, Pitchfork, Mixmag, Electronic Sound and Future Music UK. An aesthetically driven artist dedicated to marrying powerful visual backdrops with sonic explorations, James teamed up with Hungarian director, Balázs Simon; producing the critically acclaimed, Wurlitzer project which saw widespread support from the likes of Boiler Room, CLASH, Directors Notes, Motionographer, the UK and Berlin Music Video Awards, the London Short Film Festival, Dublin International Film Festival and more. 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 on a seminal label.
