We’ve been anticipating James Irwin‘s second album ever since we discovered the Montreal artist back in July. “Everything Passed Me By” and “Face Value” impressed us with their smooth, relaxed melodies and subtle electro hints, so it’s great to learn that there’s another excellent laid-back pop single to complete the trio.
Introducing “Sahra,” a beautifully produced break-up song, and the premiere of a video to match. It was directed by Hannah Fleet and features Irwin swaying as black and white projections of people wash over him. At one point, he plays a banana as an instrument, and you don’t want to miss that!
Speaking of things you don’t want to miss, Irwin has some upcoming shows that you should know about: in Montreal at Bar le Ritz PDB tomorrow (Thursday) and in Toronto at Wavelength‘s pop-up venue on Friday.
You can stream Unreal on Soundcloud.
