After a misfire several weeks ago that resulted in the track being pulled from the Radio 1’s schedule, Jamie T’s new song ‘Tinfoil Boy’ is here. Premiered by Annie Mac over on Radio 1 on Wednesday night, it is his first new material since the Magnolia Melancholia EP in April, 2015.
Eerie vocal samples of an old friend are jotted between gritty spikings of rock and an oikish chorus. Rage Against The Machine might have been his target in gunning for a heavy sound, though it rings closer to Slaves’ abrasiveness. Certainly something different, but not an immediate classic like we’ve grown used to from Treays.
In his interview with Annie Mac he dodged questions on more material, although referred to it as “the album“.
Listen to ‘Tinfoil Boy’ below.
