Here’s a thought bubble for you: JAMES BLAKE’s complete body of work is ridiculously understated. It is James Blake after all but his ability to tread frequencies and knit genres to fit every single note is just fucking bananas and his latest gem “If The Car Beside You Moves Ahead” is actual proof. The video for it — which is directed by Alexander Brown — is like soft car porn and it’s one that will have you wondering why he hasn’t teamed up with Frank Ocean to record an album that’s specifically designed for late night drives. Check it out above and weep.
James Blake’s The Colour In Anything is out on iTunes via Universal/Polydor
