Top Singles of 2018: 3) James Blake, If The Car Beside You Moves Ahead

If I’m looking for variety in my Top 5, then this track is at the cutting edge of experimental and somewhat bizarre electronic sound. It’s hypnotic and confusing with its helium fuelled cut and warped vocals, which stutter and splatter, all backed up by an icy production. Just as you think the track is going to disappear up it’s own backside through sheer cleverness, James’s own dulled vocal cuts through it to bring an element of contrasting normality. Very interesting stuff.
