Memphis Industries are delighted to announce the signing of Barbarossa, aka London based James Math', and the release of his new single, "The Load," on April 8, 2013.
By way of introduction, "The Load" exemplifies just why Memphis Industries are so excited to be working with Barbarossa. Making a virtue of minimalism, "The Load" is a sparse and delicate ballad, undercut by a distorted organ refrain, and constructed around Math''s remarkable and tender vocals. All of which mark him out as an exciting emerging talent.
Having previously released music via the Fence Collective and toured as part of Jose Gonzales' live band, Barbarossa's new material sees Math' combine dusky electronics with folk and soul to startling effect. Math' will join Junip on the road again this summer. They will be joined by ON AN ON and Quadron in select cities. Full dates below.
