The roster over at British label Young Turks is STACKED full of incredible talent. The XL Recordings imprint is home to some of the hottest UK talent, including the likes of SBTRKT, FKA Twigs and Sampha. One of the shining lights from Young Turks, indie band The xx, have been one of the biggest revelations of the last decade, with their first two albums being incredibly well received from fans and critics alike. Prime beatmaker and driving force behind the band, Jamie xx, has also been building his own career, putting his own touch onto the music world with originals and remixes that have amassed him a huge following.
With a string of tracks under his belt, the Londoner has finally announced that his highly anticipated debut album will be released in June, entitled In Colour. To coincide with this amazing news, Jamie also dropped a couple of new, previously unheard tracks from his album, including the incredibly uplifting "Loud Places", which features bandmate Romy on vocal duties. Backed by some beautifully deep drums that really keep the track ticking over, some nifty bass work and some anthemic, inspirative sounding piano chord progressions, Romy's subtly relaxing vocal tones soothe and serenade you over the course of the track, giving you a warm fuzzy feeling inside your stomach.
You can peep the video for "Loud Places" below, and be sure to check out his official website to hear a couple more cuts off his debut album In Colour, which is due out on 2nd June, 2015 (1st June in the UK).
