Writing his own material from the age of 13 and growing up in Chichester, must have had an effect on Tom Odell‘s emotional output. The Songs From Another Love EP dives straight into the deep end of love, drink and promises.
Now 21, and still a newcomer to the scene, Tom Odell wears his heart on his throat as the four track The Songs From Another Love EP is drenched in a sense of drowning in a deep puddle of tears. Using his Piano as his weapon of choice, each track rains down the pain second by second. Moving towards the Jeff Buckley, Scott Matthews bracket, Tom certainly makes an emotional impression.
Not an uplifting EP, but Tom Odell is definitely one to watch later next year. He recently signed to Columbia Records after moving to the big smoke and obviously shook some feathers in the A&R department with this haunting release.
Tom Odell will also support Jake Bugg on tour this November.
