Wayward - Love Jones - 12"

Today marks our third release for the Aesop and the debut for Wayward with ‘Love Jones’. As before, it’s available as a limited 12” and digital, with a VIP Remix the boys have done of the 12”s b-side exclusively on the digital package.

Although we’ve closed in on the winter months, ‘Love Jones’ has strung the summer out as far as they can stretch it, a soulful combination of noteworthy Motown vocals and discernible piano melodies that work to an uplifting break and release, with each layer and verse building the infectiousness of the track and working its way under the skin.

As with the single's b-side ‘Marvin’, understanding the subtleties of what is left out as much of what goes in is something that Wayward have spent time educating themselves in. This juxtaposition of vocal samples layered over more contemporary musical textures is more challenging and as Wayward see it, much more exciting to work with.
