Wayward – Love Jones

Wayward are a London-based duo who have been producing tunes for a while but have finally got their début single release in the form of ‘Love Jones’. It’s the perfect pick-me-up for a Tuesday afternoon.

Similar to other tracks on their Soundcloud, this isn’t totally original. The track is centred around the soulful falsettos of Eddie Kendricks, he from the Temptations. But the vocal loop works magnificently with the progression of the tune. A hearty bassline and delightful piano melodies rise throughout, but it’s not until three and a half minutes in when you realise this song’s got something really special.

Aesop are releasing this one (check out releases from SOHN and Gent Mason on the London-based label of the moment) – you can get it on iTunes now or on vinyl come the 2nd December.

Go like these guys on Facebook or follow them on Twitter, big ones to watch wethinks.
