As huge fans of FYFE over the years, we have no idea how we missed out on his excellent new single Hold Us Down last month. It’s probably his most animated and upbeat track to date, too, compared to his more poignant brooding offerings of the past. London musician Paul Dixon, the brilliant musician behind the project, scintillates us with frisky strings and his unique vocals on the exultant alt and chamber pop track. He’s since followed the song up with a collaboration with classical quartet Iskra Strings as well. Peaks is a lush Max Richter-like orchestral track from a new EP arriving in a week. We won’t be missing out on any news regarding that, you can count on it. Stream Peaks below.

In but a few more days, FYFE’s sophomore album The Space Between will be released. After having been dazzled by Paul Dixon’s debut album Control back in 2015, I can’t help but look forward to the new full length. Adding to my excitement for the record is Closing Time, his new taste from The Space Between. This understated piano ballad is a sparkling beauty. We rarely hear such a hushed version of FYFE, since we’re used to his jazzy slinking, opulent skirring concoctions, but we’re more than enamored by the poignant lullaby. You can pre-order The Space Between before it’s out on Friday, June 9th, here.

In 2015, my friends and I heavily obsessed over FYFE’s album Control, which I consider criminally underrated and overlooked, which was rather peculiar turn of events after all the hype its songs had received prior to release. Today brings us welcome news of FYFE’s sophomore album The Space Between, out June 9th. The splendid announcement also arrives with one of FYFE’s grooviest jams to date, a sultry skirring, melodic springing affair named Belong featuring none other than ever incredible New Zealand star Kimbra on guest vocals. Belong is mmm mmm sumptuous, a hip gyrating, makeshift dance floor must. It’s also an interesting departure from FYFE’s moodier offerings, leaving me more than curious what he’ll offer us next from The Space Between. The album can already be pre-ordered digitally, here, and physically, here.

Fyfe, or English singer songwriter and musician Paul Dixon, is responsible for making a huge impression on both myself and my closest friends with his silky baroque music. We loved his 2015 album Control so much that I brought it with us camping many times over. It’s music to our ears that Fyfe is gearing up for the release of a sophomore album this summer. Lead single Can’t Love You is exactly the sort of ornate indietronica concoction that we were hoping to get, a jazzy snazzy, sleek gleaming, and moody flittering dazzler with Son Lux meets Alexis Taylor like tendencies. You can purchase the single, here, as we await further news about that new album.

When new Fyfe surfaces, you know you’d better sit yourself down and prepare for a heart string tugging, emotionally overwhelming affair. New song Better Man is even more elegant sweeping than usual. Not only does Fyfe coo over a moody lush, florid dense soundscape, but he’s joined by Peter Gregson and the Iskra String Quartet, too. Better Man is absolutely breathtaking, an orchestral verdant world of mournful strings and indietronica brilliance. This is signature Fyfe…. pensive and eloquent, ornate and baroque. Better Man comes from Fyfe’s Stronger EP, available to stream and download on all platforms, here.

I’ve had a very splendid holiday weekend indeed. I hiked the coastline in Santa Cruz, my Warriors are Western Conference Champions, I spent time with both friends and family, and new FYFE has been delighting my ears many times over.  It was but two weeks ago that the British artist resurfaced with new material after his sensational debut album Control, and he’s now followed up lead single Stronger with a gorgeously lulling new tune, In Colour. His silken smooth voice wafts luxuriously through a vibrating sea of haunting indietronica and simmering guitar. Ever pensive and oh so sweetly bewitching FYFE will be releasing a new EP named Stronger on July 1st. In the meantime, you can purchase In Colour from various outlets, here.

Time flies. It’s been over two years since Fyfe first crooned his way into my heart through his densely florid music. The British artist was undoubtedly my favorite emerging artist, and his debut album Control, which was much overlooked here in the States, is a magnificent work of sonic art. After a prolonged period of silence, Fyfe has returned. New song Stronger is a funky simmering, jazzy chic alt pop song with an abundance of Fyfe’s usual baroque sophistication and arresting eloquence. Stronger is the first wave of brooding bliss from a new EP. He’ll be playing some shows in the UK this year with details forthcoming, but I’m still patiently waiting to see him here in California. Hopefully new music means an eventual trip this way.
