It's not every day that we get a new song from James Fauntleroy, and it's even rarer when that offering is a duet. However, that's exactly what we're getting today with the newest loosie from the prolific singer/songwriter. James teams up once again with British singer/songwriter Talay Riley for "Perfect Life," a surprisingly happy-go-lucky song, especially considering the sound and tone of James' usual solo offerings.
The track starts off by establishing a warm bass groove as the song's foundation. Soon, programmed drums and synth chords are into the mix just before James comes in with the first verse. "I get a little hot sometime / You cool me down like winter, baby," he sings. "I get a little high strung / But you're always there to hold me down." He's soon joined by Talay for the upbeat chorus, where the two sing about how perfect life can be when they're with bae. Talay then throws it back to the days of Sega Genesis with his verse, describing how his girl makes him feel "bulletproof" by doing nothing but loving him like she does. Perhaps what makes this song a perfect pop confection, though, is the obvious synergy between James and Talay's voices, with their harmonies complimenting each other effortlessly as they sing about a perfect kinda love.
As with all things when it comes to James Fauntleroy on the solo tip, this one is a release with no plans of being released as a single. However you can stream "Perfect Life" to your heart's content via SoundCloud below.
