“Wild Love” by James Bay is the song of the week. As usual, I’m listening to it on repeat. I “discovered” Bay with “Hold Back The River” and I liked his minimalist music, which is like a breath of fresh air sometimes. But now that he shifted to something more electronic (after all his new album is titled “Electric Light”), citing Prince and Frank Ocean as inspirations, I’m not disappointed at all about his new sound and look.
The video of “Wild Love”, directed by Marc Klasfeld, shows James Bay trying to reach a girl on a crowdy dance floor, while many butterflies fly all over. Beautiful song, beautiful video, and yes, beautiful and stylish musician.
