TUNE Jono McCleery - Ballade
Following hot on the heels of Jono McCleery's underground hit, 'Fire in My Hands', comes latest single and companion piece 'Ballade.' McCleery's meld of electronic music'sglitch and texture and his melodic guitar mastery is truly approaching perfection.
Its gentle, melancholic melody dancing over tough-edged drums and bass. McCleery's rich,musing voice soars over the music beautifully. Fans of his recent work will not bedisappointed - in fact, the song is everything they'll have hoped for.
With 'Fire in My Hands' winning support from luminaries such as Machinedrum, Scratcha DVA, Laurent Garnier, Mary-Anne Hobbs, Sinden and Lauren Laverne, it's clear why this precocious talent appeals so widely. This is music that's asunrestrained and beautiful as it is pioneering.
