I'm only in it for you, sings new London singer/songwriter Jones with startling clarity on "You." Produced by A. K. Paul—Jai Paul's brother and co-writer who's recently stepped out from the shadows while we still wait patiently for something new from Jai—it curls like smoke caught in a shaft of sunlight. A fondness for raw percussion and warm, blunted chords must run in the family. "Immediately fell in love with Anup's intricate sounds when I went to his studio to hear his music," Jones told The FADER. "I wrote the song on an idea he sent me when I was alone at home one night. He heard it and wrote the melody for the bridge. It worked seamlessly." You can say that again: this one slips down like ginger tea on a frosty day. Replay, replay.
