NEW MUSIC FOR BROOKLYNS FINEST OUR STARRY UNIVERSE

HAZY JAMES

Hazy James is a project by James Armstrong, 1/2 of Our Starry Universe’s Birds of Pandæmonium & a Scottish born musician/producer based in Brooklyn, NY. Informed as much by the past few decades of underground dance music as by classic 60s & 70s pop, folk and soul, Hazy James creates psychedelic explorations intended to soundtrack the journey of seekers. The music stretches airy melodies who glide over feathery textures of warm layered synthetic and organic instruments, all held down by an emotional weight and anchored by hypnotic beats.

‘Need Somebody’ is his debut single and debut for Our Starry Universe, the first in a series of records to be released over the course of 2021 as he finishes his debut album. It’s a lush, melancholy slow house track that may move the soul more than the body.

The b-side by Hardway Bros (Sean Johnston) highlights the brighter moments and adds beautiful, colorful arpeggiated melodies over a bouncy beat, creating a euphoric dance floor classic. Sean has been a huge supporter of the label recently citing its output as one of the highlights of 2020. When given the pick of any of the OSU 2021 release schedule to remix he choose Need Somebody without hesitation and transformed the introspective chugger Into a piece of Balearic bliss.

Need Somebody is out on Our Starry Universe 5 March on 12” Vinyl and Digital. Support the artist & support the label! Stream and buy here –
