Video of the Moment #1770: James Bay

It’s release week for James Bay‘s debut album on Virgin / EMI ‘Chaos and the Calm’, currently at #1 on the UK iTunes chart. The LP’s second single ‘Let It Go’ (not to be confused with that megahit from the Frozen soundtrack) now has a promo video with loads of closeups of the man himself and that famous hat. (And I should know, as he and his hat walked by me a couple times at the BBC barbecue last week in Austin.) I’m rather interested in the guitar work on here, which seems to have an awfully similar vibe to that of the Script‘s ‘Nothing’. Check out the video below.

Past TGTF coverage on James Bay is here. Stay tuned for Carrie’s coverage of the man with the hat at Communion’s Friday night showcase at St. David’s Historic Sanctuary at SXSW 2015.
