James Yuill Confirms Tour Dates With M83
"There are a myriad of ways to describe British singer/songwriter James Yuill…innovative, refreshing, intricate, quirky, gifted…and no matter what adjective one uses, it still won't touch the joy his debut album Turning Down Water For Air brings.” – AbsolutePunk
With the release of his North American debut Turning Down Water For Air rapidly approaching, James Yuill will return to the States later this month for a handful of dates supporting M83, starting in Pomona, CA on May 20. He’ll also join School of Seven Bells and Black Moth Super Rainbow for a one-off show in Los Angeles at the Troubadour on May 29; Turning Down Water For Air is out May 26.
Additionally, Yuill is confirmed for in-studio performances at two influential radio stations: Seattle’s KEXP on May 26 and Los Angeles’s KCRW on June 1. Yuill paid a short visit to America last month, where he took part in “RadioActive: A Dance Party For KCRW” and won over the packed crowd at the Park Plaza in downtown LA with his unique blend of tender simplicity and dazzling beats.
Turning Down Water For Air is a brilliant fusion of Yuill’s many influences, from the emotional songwriting of artists like Nick Drake, Radiohead and Sufjan Stevens to the dynamic beats of Justice, Chemical Brothers and Aphex Twins. With his debut album, Yuill has managed to create a sound of his very own.
