Jamie Woon – Night Air

Jamie Woon – Night Air

Jamie WoonBurial‘s amazing album Untrue from 2007 is one of my favourites, so when I heard the teaser of Jamie Woon‘s new song Night Air on singles club of the Guardian Music Weekly Podcast I began to salivate for more.

Londoner Jamie Woon shows considerable talent on his first EP Wayfaring Stranger he is a great singer with a voice nestling between John Mayer and Antony Hegarty and his own music has R&B qualities.

Although a decent outing, Wayfaring Stranger was never going to set the world on fire. It did however lay the seeds for what is an unlikely but possibly ground-breaking collaboration.

After Burial remixed Wayfaring Stranger they have now worked together to produce a new single, Night Air. It’s magical. The beautiful electronic landscape is perfectly matched by Woon’s luscious vocals.

I can only hope that the album, due for release in spring 2011 from Universal will be equally ethereal. If it is, we may have a much needed male solo singer who makes music which makes you go, ‘WOW’.
