FIRST SINGLE FROM DEBUT ALBUM
Maitland’s own enigmatic producer Just A Gent returns to release his first taste of original music for 2021, ‘No Time Left’ featuring the incredible soulful vocals of Sydneysider SAYAH. The track, commanding from the start, feels a mixture of electronica and bond theme with SAYAH’s vocals layering throughout as the track sensually swings back and forth with huge 808’s and strings, hitting you in the chest. A throwback to some of his most popular tracks, ‘No Time Left’ is a little bit of ‘Loaded’ and ‘Heavy as a Heartbreak’ mixed with a whole lot of swagger, this new track sure to have Just A Gent fans very excited and ready for new music.
On the new single, Just A Gent created a real sound scape, saying “This track entrances me. I don’t know why but even now when I listen it’s like stepping into a new realm for a few minutes. It’s also how I felt when writing the track. It fell together so smoothly and seamlessly it was almost too easy.”
Written in 2019 over a few sessions and finished in 2021, talented songstress, collaborator and performer SAYAH added to the track with Just A Gent, layering her incredible vocals and writing a top line reflecting the early stages of a relationship. SAYAH saying “The song reflects those early teething stages of a relationship. It’s exciting, it’s flirty, it’s all of the good things. You finally find the courage to admit your feelings but the window to act on it is about to close.”
‘No Time Left’ is also the first taste of Just A Gent’s debut album with more coming, titled Planet Oasis set to be released later this year.
