New Find: Jarryd James Makes An Auspicious Debut With “Do You Remember”
It’s only March, but 2015 has already been a great year for Australian pop music. Newcomers Eves The Behavior and Vallis Alps dropped brilliant singles and 2014’s break-out diva Meg Mac is finally promoting her debut EP stateside. You can now add Brisbane-born Jarryd James to the long list of Aussie acts that need to be on your radar. He comes out swinging with sparse and gloomy break-up anthem “Do You Remember.”
Co-written and produced by Joel Little (the man that brought us Lorde and Broods), “Do You Remember” is a winning mix of R&B and eerie electronica. It’s a refreshingly original sound, but there’s an undeniable pop sensibility that still makes it palatable to radio programmers and, as it turns out, the general public. Jarryd’s excellent debut single is already top 10 on Australian iTunes and should climb even higher with the recent release of a stylish black-and-white video. Watch up top.
