It’s taken nearly a year for James Gillepsie to return with a new single, but Dead In The Water was more than worth that long wait. The British crooner first impressed us with a sound reminiscent of Hozier, James Blake, and Jake Garratt on his debut single What You Do, and now he’s back with more of that gritty soulfulness and potent resonance on Dead In The Water, on which he also reminds us of Rag’N’Bone Man and Dermot Kennedy this time around. A hypnotic, stripped back piano melody is paired with a beautifully uncoiling, expansively unwinding chorus on the magnificent track. Speaking on Dead In The Water, James states: “It’s about knowing you’ve fallen before you do, the feeling that you will carry on floating aimlessly without that love. In this case, its a forbidden one – that you both want but can’t have. I produced it with Mike Spencer, whose studio’s in the middle of a wood; it definitely captured a moment, turning off the lights and recording vocals using only the light coming through the trees.”
