Who are James Davis? We got the video for their first single ever, the folk-soul ballad "Better Than You Are," and it's pretty interesting. Utilizes heavy drums and pulsing keys to sound big, vocalists/twin sisters Jess and Rey narrate feeling small in someone's shadow: I will be better than you are, better than you are, better than you could be. "Because the record holds so much weight, we held onto it for about a year," the band tells FADER. They spent the past year knocking around studios writing, "but we believed it would be an honest way to introduce ourselves." Watch the first drop from their upcoming self-titled EP, and poke around their Tumblr to see how they spend their days. They're mostly a mystery for now. Excited to learn more.
