Are you looking for new music to blast on your speakers in your room? I always am. James TW is a new singer/songwriter from Ontario, Canada that recently went on tour with the now, very popular singer Shawn Mendes. James just released his second single “Ex,” which in my opinion, is the best song of his yet.
The song jumps right in to the chorus with his voice and a full band around him. Although the constant beat throughout the song is amazing, the one thing that I can’t get enough of is his voice. The first time I listened to this song, it immediately hit me. This song is a perfect expression of the many emotions you feel when going through a rough time, like a breakup. A big thing about this song is that it sounds like a story. He is expressing how he felt after the relationship ended and how he is dealing with it.
This song is about James not wanting to get over his ex girlfriend. His friends want to introduce him to other people, but as he says in the song, he doesn’t have the heart to tell them that if he meets someone else he might fall in love with her, which is exactly what he doesn’t want to do. He doesn’t want to forget about all the good times that he spent with his ex girlfriend. As the song goes on, he is at a bar trying to drown his sorrows and while he’s there he realizes that he almost bought some girl her “favorite drink.”
