|Jamie Smith had already conquered the planet when he travelled it as a trio with The XX. Jamie XX now lives alone, and, bearing the name of a band which substance he holds, on the verge of publishing his first album, he hasn’t stopped travelling. For months now, he has been releasing sublime singles for all those consonant buffs, and long formats seemed like a faraway horizon, much too far away, an ideal elsewhere. In assembling the thousands of nuances glimpsed at in these songs, Jamie XX has finally offered, with In Colours, the perfect synthesis of electronic and pop music, of light and dark, of forgetfulness and meditation. Yet another miracle accomplished by he who, in 2011, had given an unhoped-for new energy to Gil Scott-Heron. The letter counts twice.
