Turns out for all the vocal distortion and twisted beats, James Blake has quite a voice on him. This one’s mostly piano-led, with some ambient asides, and a drum beat that oddly enough does not show up until the last 30 seconds. An oddball combination for a new single, but one that may prove too affective to resist.
