Ahead of his highly-anticipated set at this year's Splendour In The Grass, UK electro-soul prodigy James Blake has made an unlikely appearance on a recent episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to perform 'I'll Come Too.'
Plucked from his latest full length effort, the overly romantic and sonically rich record Assume Form, the performance of 'I'll Come Too' sees Blake joined by his live touring band on electronic drums and modular synths, possibly marking the first time ever that a modular synth has been played on US daytime television. Keep your eyes peeled to see Rob McAndrews doing some knob-twiddling to kick off the jittery, percussive loop throughout the track below.
For Australian audiences, this performance acts as an indicator of what to expect from Blake's forthcoming visit to our shores for Splendour In The Grass and a run of headline shows across the east coast in July. However, judging from recent setlists, there's still a whole bunch of bass heavy electro cuts in his live shows to get crowds pumping. Suss out this pumping version of 'Voyeur' below.
How good do those synths sound?? Man, we can't wait.
