Jamie xx – “Far Nearer”

02.23.11 7 years ago 6 Comments

Jamie xx seems to be thinking summer already, channeling the sensuous sounds of the Caribbean on his most recent track “Far Nearer” more than the dreariness of his native England. Fresh off We’re New Here, Young Jamie teases out thoughts of warm breezes, sunny days and cold beers on this newly completed mix. Steel drums cheerily clang throughout the song’s eight minutes, while the inclusion of energetic children’s voices adds a joyous burst of spontaneity. However, don’t be fooled. Pushing play won’t make those 80-degree days come any quicker. Although, it would be wise to let the Brit wunderkid initiate the summertime countdown.
