The second single from the forthcoming album, Carrion Repeating, sees James building an epic pop song on a hypnotically repetitive bassline, sprinkled with  raw post-punk guitars, and organ melody. The additional vocals of Clare Gillett provide a smooth counterpoint to his rough London-Essex tones.

Having played in bands for a decade, most notably THE DOMESTICS, but also PI$$ER, TOKYO LUNGS, and half a dozen others, the lyric is inspired by long night-time drives, when you’re desperately trying to stay awake, reach your destination in good time, but also stay alive! Anyone that regularly drives long distances in the early hours will feel an affinity for the lyric. There is a ‘clean’ version for radio.

James Domestic nestles in that nook of singular British pop music where MADNESS, IAN and BAXTER DURY, MARK E. SMITH, ROOTS MANUVA, BILLY CHILDISH, and SLEAFORD MODS reside. Throw in some KING TUBBY, CAN, and ESG, and you probably have your nose pressed against the right window.
