EDITORS’ NOTES

Jaymes Young’s heartfelt, confessional pop songs trace the highs and lows of young love. And his long-awaited debut album is an emotional rollercoaster. “Don’t You Know” uses gritty electric guitar and galloping drums to drive home the torture of one-sided feelings (“Don’t you know that I’m going mad?” he belts with frantic urgency, “Don’t you know I want you so bad?”), while “We Won’t,” a dreamy synth-pop duet with Phoebe Ryan, makes peace with calling it quits.

About Jaymes Young

Melding together elements of electronica, smooth indie R&B, and lush synth pop, Seattle native Jaymes Young emerged in early 2013, scoring a deal with Atlantic, which released his debut EP, Dark Star, later that year. He was quickly sent out on a major tour with London Grammar before returning with a follow-up EP, Habits of My Heart, in 2014. That year also brought a collaboration with David Guetta and Birdy on Guetta's track "I'll Keep Loving You." He and singer Phoebe Ryan offered their own collaborative single, "We Won't," the following year. Young returned in early 2017 with a pair of soulful singles in "Stoned on You" and "Feel Something." The latter provided the title for his first full-length album, which appeared in June of 2017. ~ Timothy Monger
