The rise of James Smith has been nothing short of phenomenal. To date, he has amassed over 200 million streams from the release of just two EP’s.
Now he’s back with a stunning release that further cements his position as one of the UK’s most promising new talents.
“‘My Oh My’ is a song about loss, of any type really. I wanted to write something that wasn’t too specific to my situation and felt simple but powerful; something that could stand as the voice of a lot of people. At its most basic form, it is a break-up song, the most pertinent lyric for me being ‘you’re on my mind, but you’re out my arms’ – the feeling of someone still being present but not in the physical sense. Sometimes break-ups can feel like this, like a death, a mourning. This song explores that side of a break-up, that feeling of loss.”
Taken from the upcoming EP ‘District Line’ which is out this Spring.
