Fyfe – “For You” (Stereogum Premiere)
The promising young British musician Paul Dixon performs R&B-inflected experimental pop under the name Fyfe (not to be confused with Guillemots frontman Fyfe Dangerfield, another great British musician). Last year Dixon racked up a lot of streams with a strong initial run of singles including “Solace” and “Conversations.” Today he unveils “For You,” another fine offering that sets his gentle high-range croon against a minor-key piano and guitar progression and a tightly snapping groove. There’s a euphoric sax solo tacked on the end for extra credit, and it’s enough to lift this grade-A single to A+ status. Listen to it.
The “For You” single is out 6/23. Check out some upcoming UK tour dates:
