Big Science Records presents Leo James’ latest release Féth Fíada, a distillation of the musical ideas James has been developing in his recent work. A collection of hypnotic repetitions, held saxophone notes, synthesiser drones and beautiful chords, the record is full of life and rich in texture. The music is an exploration of disconnection, longing and catharsis, and is both deeply personal and wide open to the listener - emotion hidden in plain sight.
In recent years James has released records with Patience, Berceuse Heroique, Neubau and his own imprint Body Language. In 2020 he was asked to remix a song from the collaborative project of Ariel Kalma and Gilbert Cohen, released on Versatile Records. In July 2021, James collaborated with renowned Aboriginal artist Daniel Boyd for his solo exhibition 'Treasure Island' at Kukje Gallery, Seoul. Boyd created a 6 minute video work that was projected alongside his paintings. Titled Rivers, the projection was soundtracked by Leo James' track of the same name.
