Searing, electronica-tipped: ‘Him.Her’ is the latest release from UK alternative singer-songwriter, James Gillespie

Following his latest critically-acclaimed release ‘Lost’, English born, Scottish-raised alternative singer-songwriter James Gillespie continues to emerge as one of the most interesting and diverse artists coming out of the city. Following on from his notable debut release “What You Do” (racing to over 15M streams on Spotify), James comes through with his brand-new offering, the searing, electronica-tipped ‘Him.Her’.

Evoking the kinds of natural technical ability and vocal prowess that earned artists like James Blake and Hozier instant kudos, James’ comet-like entrance into the scene last year has seen him headline a sold-out date at London’s Lexington and drop his own version of P!nk’s “Don’t Let Me Get Me” that made it to the ears of the superstar – who promptly asked him to perform it with her at her headline set at V Festival last year.

The remarkable emergence continues with ‘Him.Her.’ – a pared-back electric guitar instrumental compliments Gillespie’s gavel-flecked vocal to enthralling effect. Speaking on the track, James states:

“‘Him.Her.’ is the story of two people that can’t be apart. Even when they know how different they are and that everything is against them, they can’t be without each other. Like a moth to the flame. There is no other way.”

Co-producing all of his own music, James is currently in the studio with Andy Hall Hall (Rag ‘n’ Bone Man) and published by Good Soldier (Biffy Clyro, The 1975, Freya Ridings). The company James is keeping alongside his notable entrance will continue the intrigue around this most

‘Him.Her’ is available to purchase/stream from all major digital outlets.
