It's been nearly a year since Albuquerque-based, dream-folk singer-songwriter Russell James released his impressive Wave/Water album. After spending time on the road with a series of live performances, Russell is back with his new indie/dream-folk single "You Got Me Bad." On his social media sites, Russell elaborates, "It’s a wintry electro-pop ballad, full of dreamy bits and bobs to pull you through the doldrums of these last winter months." With a lovely blend of dreamy, atmospheric synths, electric guitar, some reverb and Russell's warm, emotive vocals, this melodic number is one smooth and impressive listen that will ease your transition through the seasons.
"You Got Me Bad" is the first taste of a larger body of forthcoming new music from this emerging musician. Russell remarks, "I have a new album heading your way a little later this year and this new single is a good preview for what you’re gonna hear later this year." The recently announced title of Russell's third studio album is Pay Attention!
