Jarryd James returns with a new single 'Slow Motion'

ARIA award winning Australian artist, Jarryd James, returns in 2019 with the announcement of his new single ‘Slow Motion’  

Produced by Joel Little in Los Angeles, the track builds towards a tribal chant as syncopated 808s and piano echo beneath dynamic vocalizations. His evocative intonation immediately engages by way of confessional lyrics over this alternative R&B backdrop.

“It’s a song about being away from my wife and always being in a different time zone,” he explains. “It might be nighttime where I am, and it’s daytime where she is. The whole situation takes a toll on you when you travel as much as I do. It’s pretty taxing living in Australia and trekking to the United States so often. From there, the song just fell out of me as a natural discussion of how I felt.”

Over the past 18 months Jarryd James has been hitting the studio with Clams Casino [A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples, Lana Del Rey], Cautious Clay [KYLE, Logic], and Andrew Wyatt [Miike Snow] as well as Little and Malay; setting himself up for an immense year ahead. Having been confirmed for SXSW and joining longtime friend Matt Corby on the road Jarryd, starts 2019 as he means to go on, sharing his sound with the world again.

Ultimately, Jarryd encodes a message straight from the heart in the music.

I want people to feel confident when they listen to me,” he concludes. “I want them to feel like they can shut the windows, close the doors, and let the music sink into them. The world is a noisy place these days. The one thing I love about music is you can shut everything out to it, feel confident, and be at ease. I’m just grateful I get to do this.
