Whenever Jaymes Young begins to serenade us with his gentle and alluring voice, I can't help but feel a sense of tranquility drift over me. Proven with his previous releases, "Dark Star" and "Wondering", Jaymes replicates this recipe for success with his new track "Fragments" which is co-produced by Mike Fresh. This powerful, track relies on a graceful piano line, celestial synth notes, and of course Jaymes' charming vocals to lure you in like bear searching for delectable honey. In essence, "Fragments" is just that - an astonishingly sweet, and endearing, song that connects with you both musically and lyrically, even if the words are a somewhat somber reflection of a past relationship. Slated to be released on Jaymes' self-titled mixtape, Jaymes Young, on August 20th (a 3-track EP is slated for release on that date as well), "Fragments" is a strong addition to your music library.
