James Yuill – Fire Breathing 
James Yuill - Fire Breathing

Release Date: Out Now

The heavily effected vocals that open this tune up puts me in mind of Queen but then it settles in to a nice little synthy ripple with more of a Jim Noir or Badly Drawn Boy vibe. The incomparable James Yuill is one of those rare talents that can pull together different genres and moods in one song and make it appear seamless. ‘Fire Breathing’ has a dreamy feel for the first 90 seconds but when that processed beat kicks in and the synth notes start scattering like fireflies in front of a strobe you are immediately awoken from your trance like state. This is a skittish, uncertain tune with its fingers in a number of different pies and it’s heart breaking in a hundred different places.
