Montreal songwriter James Irwin thoroughly charmed us with his recent single “Everything Passed Me By,” and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the next single from his forthcoming album Unreal. And here it be! “Face Value” does not disappoint, another relaxed yet sombre song, seems like this record will be autumnal to the max.
As an added treat, the track’s been remixed by the brilliant L Ron of Holobody. Also essential listening!
Ninnyhammer (Young Galaxy remix)
Montreal’s Young Galaxy have shown themselves to be amazing remixers this year, we’re still really into their take on Rachel Zeffira. But their Holobody remix, of one of our favourite songs of last year, tops it wethinks. Sounding huge!
