tongue tied (lyric video) – FJ Law (Video)

“Sometimes we need to talk, explain something important but we feel like tongue tied. That is the situation in FJ Law’s emotional song with plenty of rich sounds and rhythm up and downs!”

FJ Law – the solo project of songwriter and producer Danny Hall – will release his new single ‘tongue tied’ on the 20th January via 225 Records/Believe, the follow up to last year’s ‘friends.’

Merging his singer/songwriter roots with swathes of electronic beats and pulsing synth lines, ‘tongue tied’ further showcases FJ Law’s talent for creating effortless alt-indie tunes.

Speaking about the single, FJ Law says: ”This song is about never finding the right words to say in important situations. Always stumbling over your sentences and never helping the situation. A problem I struggle with a lot. The theme of the song is based around this and a toxic first relationship that I went through when I was 18. There was a temper of my partner’s that was hard to control and often left us in pieces. I knew she wasn’t good for me but it was all I ever knew. There would be occasions when she threw my clothes out the window to the neighbour’s garden or threw my phone against the wall. I knew I couldn’t carry on but I could never bring myself to say the words to end it. I would always back track, get tongue tied and tangle myself further in the web.”

Having had support from BBC Introducing for his single ‘friends,’ FJ Law recently shared a stripped back live version of the track that you can watch here.

FJ Law has worked alongside the likes of Nina Nesbitt and Kwassa, and has already had support from the likes of Phil Taggart, who picked FJ Law’s unreleased track ‘State To State’ for his ‘Chillest Show,’ whilst another unreleased track – ‘Catching 22’ – found its way on the BBC Hotlist after FJ Law had uploaded it to BBC Introducing.
