Funny enough I heard this song on a Friday during the last hours of work. Funny because during that time I am usually listening to some sort of EDM or fast-paced music to get me in the right state of mind for the upcoming weekend events. Instead, I was pleasantly introduced to James Blake, the Litherland English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer from London. While the tone of his latest record “Are You Even Real?” wasn’t my usual goto on a Friday afternoon it was just what I needed to calm my nerves and allow me to zen out for a whole minute.
“Are You Even Real?” features a mysterious vibe on the beat that is littered with musical break downs from a multitude of instruments. The strings and the keys all get a moment to shine through and the symphony of sounds plays the perfect complement to James’ amazing vocals. The melody of lyrics is unexpected and creates a unique sound.
This song is astonishing and was enough to leave me curious as to what else the young artist has released. I’ll be exploring James Blake‘s entire portfolio of works and will be sure to report back to you all with my findings. Be sure to hit the play button below and get ready to be blown away “Are You Even Real?” is a solid masterpiece!
