The 27th of July sees the release of James Mackenzie’s new single ‘Lost in the Ocean’.
His voice delivers strength without pushing the boundaries of overintensity
The follow up to ‘Air That we Breathe’ sees James step it up a notch or two. Where ‘Air We Breathe’ is intimate and personal in atmosphere, ‘Lost in The Ocean’, is its sweeping complement. Emotional, yes, but also expansive verging on the anthemic but tempered to convey the feeling of the song – ‘drowning in my emotion, I need a hand to hold, to pull me up and never let me go’. His voice delivers strength without pushing the boundaries of overintensity.
There is a balance to the song, interest is held from start to finish, and it’s well crafted. It conjures up a seascape in the mind’s eye, and with that effect, it delivers.
The Honeymoon period may be over as James returns to Scotland but he still has a lot of tales to tell and plenty to offer.
James Mackenzie’s new single ‘Lost in the Ocean’ is released on the 27th of July on all the normal channels.
