We’re well and truly into the main course of Jamie T’s return now.

That wait between albums keeps getting banged on about when it comes to Jamie T. The vacuum of time between 'Kings & Queens' and 'Carry On The Grudge' felt like an eternity, so when he burst back into frame with a dark and complex record that jumped from one style to another throughout - we all pretty much lost our shit. Yet the line that Jamie trod on that record was a balanced one, trying to satisfy and reward the fans who had waited so long for more fast-paced indie bursts and then his own creative twitches that naturally comes from, well, living life over the course of 5 years.

If 'Carry On The Grudge' was at times a compromise, then 'Tinfoil Boy' may be the dawning of a meaty new phase for Jamie T. Like a bulldog let off the leash, it crashes into ghostly gaps before diving head first onto cataclysmic breakdowns of dank hip-hop beats and reverberating riffs like a demolition team in full flight. “It’s time like this I feel tricked into waking up” is a particular insight into the shadows of the night that Jamie has long basked in, and finally it seems he’s well and truly living within them.

Mentioning that he’s listened to a lot of Rage Against The Machine in the run up, we can only imagine the depths of intensity awaiting Jamie’s next chapter. All we know is that this is exactly what his return is all about. Buckle up. Jamie Muir
