As he continues to prove to us he is one of Australia's greatest electronic music artists, Hayden James has nowhere to go but up. After bursting onto the scene in 2013, the Sydney producer has been teasing us with one or two singles a year but alas, the wait is finally over! He returns today with the announcement of his debut full-length album Between Us and in anticipation of this huge release, he shares his latest single Nowhere To Go, which gives an exciting taste as to what the new album has in store for us.
Following the success of tracks such as 2016's 'Just a Lover', 'NUMB' from 2017 and more recently with over 250 million global streams, 'Just Friends', Between Us is the awaited accumulation of almost six years of finessing the clear Hayden James sound.
'Nowhere to Go' is no different, and this infectious slice of electronica is a glittery, summer-infused collaboration with NAATIONS (Nicky Night Time & Nat Dunn) that moves audiences through moments of focused synths and pop melodies. Driven by an addictive groove-powered bassline and the soul-tinged vocals of Nat Dunn as an instrument itself, the track will leave eager fans hooked and wanting more.
