“A new favourite of mine. Absolutely beautiful” – Chris Hawkins, BBC Radio 6 Music
“Almost uniquely contagious, recalling Tobias Jesso Jr. in its easy-going emotion” – CLASH Magazine
A beautifully smooth ode to seizing the moment, Through Your Fingers is the latest single from Hackney-based trio Pace. Set for release on the 12th of May on Noon Pacific Records, the new single is the follow up to 2016’s Foolish. Speaking about the new track, lead singer Jamie Ley explains:
“Through Your Fingers is about meeting a person who turns your world upside down, but not having the courage to ask them out. The song is a kind of mantra – you’ve got to act quickly on things before they slip away. Don’t be scared to tell someone how you feel, otherwise you could lose them forever.”
After coming across Jamie’s silky vocals, Bernard Butler, of Suede fame, was profoundly drawn in, as he explains:
“I heard Jamie’s voice and loved the English baritone quality to it along with his open hearted songs.”
Bernard went on to produce Pace’s 2016 debut single Heartbeat, which was quickly picked up by a number of taste-making press outlets. The follow-up single Foolish has now received over 200,000 online plays, as well as being featured across the BBC radio network and on Spotify’s Top 50 UK Viral Tracks.
The band came together in the spring of 2016, after old friends Jamie Ley and Philip Morris reunited. Following a day spent chatting about their love of great pop music, the pair started playing together. Something clicked and an opportunity was seized. The lineup was complete some months later, with the addition of drummer Aaron Colton. Having sold out their only two live shows thus far, at London’s iconic St Pancras Old Church, and Dalston’s The Victoria, Pace are gaining an envious reputation on the city’s live circuit. The new single Through Your Fingers is the latest tale in the quickly developing Pace story.
