James Blake – “Modern Soul”

modern soul

James Blake‘s “Modern Soul” sounds a bit more futuristic than we’d anticipate; full of dissonant cords, clanging cymbals, and his beautiful falsetto vocals. The production is jarring, almost distracting listeners from Blake’s soothing vocals. However, James has beautiful emotion, unorthodox runs, and intricate intonations within his performance that can’t help but ensure that he remains center stage despite the chaos swirling around him.
