LA singer/producer James Fauntleroy is back with a new cut titled “Miami Rain,” and as per usual, it is a soulful, mellow and wonderfully simple track. This isn’t the only new joint from James, however. A few days ago he also released a new playlist (take that Drake) titled Farewell (>?) which features two more new songs from the LA crooner.

Fauntleroy fans will be quick to dig “Miami Rain.” Thanks to its paired down percussions, the song acts as a showcase for Fauntleroy’s incredible voice as he describes a love/hate relationship with Miami rain. The song feels like an allusion to a very hot/cold relationship from James’ past. “Warm but it fucks up your plans sometimes.”
Though it is a relatively short track, clocking in at a quick 2:27, there’s more than enough to satisfy. The unforced allusion to love, plus the addition of an elegant guitar solo at the end of the song, makes “Miami Rain” an enjoyable listening experience as we close the books on Winter and look towards the coming months of Spring.
