Ever get the feeling that you're bound to run into an ex-lover at a function? Elliot James, a London-born musican known for being a member of bands Extremely Bad Man and Hey Monday, understands that frustration all too well.
He's now channeling his emotions on new single "Smooth," exclusively premiering on Billboard today (June 12). "Your nail was in my coffin, now I'm smashing in/ Everything I held on to is finally free again," James intones on the buzzy track, which is dotted with zipping electronic synths and a punchy bassline.
James' new album Always Lately will be released on August 2 via Blossöm Records, with his second single "Filters" to precede on July 10.
