The new single Time and Money brings together a somewhat nostalgic RnB verse melody, with dreamy production and equally ethereal vocals, to elevate that passionate conviction and heartfelt lyricism as ever, but to deliver an ultimately unique take on his reflective style.
The softly revealing nature of the story telling, the uplifting honesty and brightness – Kyle Jaymes always rather meticulously walks the line between the familiar and the unknown.
Windbreaker is beautiful, refreshingly honest in its depiction of the subject matter, committing to the concept in both style and lyric – with a cleverly contemporary edge of design – an artist after our own heart.
“Living like this keeps me ill” resounds as a near-falsetto peak, right before the fall back to acoustic softness, and it kicks in for this placement – it lingers, it engages, it’s memorable.
Kyle Jaymes warms the heart and simultaneously explores the ache of modern life with this kick-back to the pop-rock anthems of a simpler decade.
