James MacLaine – Burnt
|James MacLaine - Burnt|
Release Date: 10th February 2017
London dweller James MacLaine has a humble approach to things, understated if you will, which is deeply refreshing in these times of overblown bombast. The singer-songwriter-producer’s debut single, ‘Burnt’, continues that theme of humility with a steady acoustic strum’n’pick building in to a campfire ballad with Wild West ambitions. MacLaine’s voice is smooth and almost of the pop-soul genre with its ability to slide up an octave in a very Ed Sheeran style but there’s more substance and more thought behind this. Electronic ripples appear in the background to accompany the organic guitar while a beat that feels somewhere between human and robot keeps things flowing. By the time this tune stutters to an end, you can be left in no doubt that MacLaine has chops and a flair for song crafting so expect more from this talented gent.
