Usually Sam Smith’s name connected with anything these days should be enough to guarantee swift passage into the top ten on charts across the world, but for Disclosure’s last single ‘Omen’, it probably didn’t do nearly as well as outsiders (including us) thought it would. Or, more importantly, should.
So, with the imminent release of their sophomore album ‘Caracal’ at the end of the month, the boys have wheeled out the next official single from the project, ‘Jaded’. And it now comes with its own video.
It kicks off with a little flashback to the video for ‘Omen’, before opening on an older gentleman in a deserted office building attempting to hypnotise a woman in a chair.
Behind the storyline, naturally, is a pumping ’90s disco beat that lies beneath some smooth layered vocals that give this track a real sense of warmth and soul.
