In the cyclical universe of music, everything old becomes new again. Tom Adams seems to embrace this sentiment with both his nostalgic and innovative elements present in his latest single "The Call". It easy to become particularly drawn to Tom's dramatic, moving sound, richly presented in this ballad.
The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Noel Gallagher, and James Blunt are not merely names, they're milestones in the music landscape. Tom's songwriting, influenced by these legends, feels like a serene drive through a memory lane. His music design harks back to the comforting folk ballads with an infusion of pop, much like a fresh wind over familiar terrains.
His voice, unique yet strangely familiar, is reminiscent of the essence of early James Blunt and the emotional intensity of Keane. With such a chilled, melancholic approach to pop, it's no surprise that he's been championed by BBC Introducing and has captivated listeners across the South West.
Collaborating with eminent producers like Guy Langley (SYCO) and the 2023 Grammy Award winner Oli Jacobs of Real World Studios provides him with a platform that feels expansive, and yet the soul of his work remains deeply personal. This duality can be best observed in "The Call".
Listening to "The Call", the ebb and flow of heartbreak, lust, joy, and the universal craving for love and care - is all there. The bouncy synths, harmonious echoed backing vocals, and pop-infused aura invite the listener into Tom's world. The brilliance lies not just in the song's technical execution but in the authenticity of the emotions it conveys.
