James May – “Wild Love” Review

James May – “Wild Love” Review

 

London based singer-songwriter James Bay impresses us once again with his glorious new single “Wild Love”.

The 27-year-old is back with his second album and a new music video “Wild Love”, featuring Stranger Things star “Natalia Dyer”.

 

If you were not a fan of James’ acoustic sound on his first album, then this laid-back pop may do it for you.

Comeback single ‘Wild Love’ draws on influences that include Frank Ocean, Prince, and Drake, as well as Bowie, Lorde and Blondie – he’s not messing about with album number two.

James, who won Best Male Artist at the 2016 BRIT awards, speaking to the Evening Standard admitted how he did not want his new music to be a repeat of his debut.

 

“I’m trying to make songs that make people feel something, and if I’m lucky, even move them”

 

‘Wild Love’ is a great example of where James has gone as an artist. The song is essentially about that explosive, euphoric feeling of falling in love.
