Another upcomer who’s making their name in the north eastern corner of the country is Tom A Smith. And I have to say, for such a young man, this lads songwriting is way beyond his years.
Tom, within this track, seems to have developed a really relatable way of writing about his youthful experiences and his life within his lyrics. This way of writing just has a different effect to the age old metaphors and clichés that most writers use.
Perhaps the most intriguing part of this song is the synths that are used to fill out the texture of the song. They’re applied in extremely precise places and to brilliant effect. They do their job and more in this track.
A youthful writer at only 19 years old, after hearing this I’m almost certain that Tom A Smith will, somehow, grow into a better songwriter than he already is. A hard task considering the quality on display in his music already.
