"London Grammar account for every slippery string, vocal echo, ultrasound heartbeat, and wordless, holy vocal peal on 'Metal and Rust,' the second in a so-far immaculate collection." - Pitchfork
"The title track of their debut EP, 'Metal & Dust,' features backing so tasteful it cries out to be defaced, while the 'Unfinished Sympathy' breakbeat further enhances the sense of early-90's dejà vu." - The Guardian
"London Grammar are now officially 2-for-2, with this dusky, sumptuous new single ['Metal & Dust'] emerging from the mysterious LDN group." - Gorilla vs. Bear
Jaymes Young will assure you that he’s a “songwriter before a singer and performer.”
That wise and self-aware summation cuts to the core of who the Seattle-born and Los Angeles-based musician/poet really is. He still spends countless hours holed up in his bedroom carefully piecing together compositions, penning lyrics, and exploring sounds. His musical wanderlust yields a sound steeped in pop palatability, dusky cinematic electronics, and stark, stirring instrumentation. He sharpens that signature style on his 2017 full-length debut, Feel Something [Atlantic Records].
In 2012, Jaymes traded his native Seattle, WA for Los Angeles, CA. 2013 saw him independently release the critically acclaimed Dark Star mixtape, gaining praise from Nylon, Pigeons & Planes, VICE’s Noisey and more. Following his signing to Atlantic Records, his Habits of My Heart EP spawned viral hits such as the title track and “I’ll Be Good,” which both surpassed 20 million Spotify streams. Supporting the EP, he hit the road with the likes of London Grammar and Vance Joy. And fueled by fan fervor, 2015’s “We Won’t” with Phoebe Ryan caught on like proverbial wildfire, amassing over 25 million Spotify streams and 4 million Soundcloud plays and receiving praise from Billboard, Earmilk, IndieShuffle and more.
