Jamie T Carry On The Grudge

PREVIEW: Jamie T – Turn On The Light


With the current furore surrounding Jamie Treays, one would be forgiven for thinking that he had been a permanent fixture on the face of UK indie. That’s simply not the case however, as Carry on the Grudge, his third album, marks the end of a five year hiatus for Treays, otherwise known as Jamie T. and while some assumed he’d packed everything in, when news of the record began to circulate, the hype machine went in to overdrive.

Now, a week before the album’s release, Jamie T has released the third track to be taken from Carry on the Grudge, ‘Turn On the Light’. Fusing together Jamie’s trademark drawl with a soft, uplifting chorus, it’s a track that hints at the more mature, darker aspects of the record it’s taken from, whilst never being too far removed from earlier material. For those struggling to wait until the album, ‘Turn On the Light’ should be just enough to see through until its release next week.

Carry on the Grudge is released on September 29 via Virgin
