Released 6th June 2011
Limited Vinyl & Download
The limited heavyweight vinyl features a die cut picture sleeve (*edit: sold out, try Discogs).
‘Far Nearer’ is an understated yet powerful production, its ecstatic, steel drum-driven rhythm merging beautifully with the pitch bent and re-interpreted vocal phrase “I Feel Better When I Have You Near Me”.
Countering the sweetness of Far Nearer is B-side track ‘Beat For’, a dark and brooding beast blending half-remembered rave hooks with the same sense of rhythm and space that characterizes Jamie’s work with The xx.
