James Vincent McMorrow
“Profound and unexpected…a singular style that barely sounds as if it’s from this world” Mojo ****
“This new album is stunning” Observer
“Earthy, sensuous…announces the artist’s foray into new sonic territory” Pitchfork
Following the release of the Dubliner’s debut album ‘Early In The Morning’, which was written and self-produced in an isolated house by the Irish Sea, James Vincent McMorrow has since enjoyed an extensive, slow-burning array of success: a cover of Steve Winwood’s ‘Higher Love’ was picked up by Lovefilm, and charted went Top 10, whilst James has also been nominated for the Choice Music Prize (the Irish Mercury), and sold out an impressive array of London venues (Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, the ICA, St Pancras Church).
Fast-forward to January 2014 and the follow-up to the platinum-selling debut album, ‘Post Tropical’ is released. The record itself was constructed over eight months on a pecan farm half a mile from the Mexican border – which the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beach House and Animal Collective have all called home at one point. Having already received significant critical acclaim, ‘Post Tropical’ has been preceded by the stunning debut single ‘Cavalier’, which debuted on Noisey, topped Hype Machine, and has been play-listed at 6Music and XFM.
