Brisbane based artist Jamie Lane continues to beguile listeners on debut EP ‘Minimal Haze’. His particular brand of alt-R&B is peppered with electronic elements, with sumptuous synth work meeting sombre songwriting. The vocal blends with ease, gliding smoothly over the energetic soundscape. New single ‘Bleed’ showcases this perfectly, with Lane’s percussion driven instrumental leading the way. ‘Say It Again’ featuring Naji is another highlight, showing his versatility as a producer and vocalist.
“This project was fairly challenging as I tried to find the right balance between uplifting music that also felt consistent with the more sombre themes of the writing / lyrics. This was simultaneously an exercise in pushing my sound into less familiar territories, partly to reinforce the themes of uncertainty and precariousness that’s reflected in the core writing.”
