Let’s talk about Tom

Hola everyone.


As most of you probably know, when it comes to music, I’m head over heels in love with Indie music. Two Door Cinema Club, Nothing But Thieves, The Wombats and Twenty One Pilots are just a few of the bands that make my heart leap a little bit while listing to their music. This kind of music has been dominating my taste in music the past years, since 2013, when I finally started developing a good taste (thank god). But as pretty much everyone on this planet, I don’t always stick to my own rules, which is why I’d always fly to Amsterdam again to see Martijn or to Zürich to see Ed live. They both couldn’t be any more different to Indie music, but nonetheless they are two of my favorite musicians and biggest loves. And today I’d like to talk about another one of those special voices and musicians, that I couldn’t live without anymore. Today I’d like to talk about the one and only Tom Rosenthal.

.

First of all, let me introduce you to Tom. Tom is an English singer-songwriter (of course), who lives in London together with his family – he has two young daughters, so cute – and has been making music since, like, forever, pretty much, by which I mean that he released his very first singles and album in 2011. Since then he has been making and putting music out there about every year or month or so. And right now he’s working on a sleepy album (many people go to sleep while listening to his music, which totally makes sense, trust me) and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m already so deeply in love with it, although I haven’t heard anything from it. I just know it’s going to be breathtakingly good.

.

But what about his music? Well, if I had to describe it, I would say that it’s the kind of music you want to listen to while you sit outside, on a warm summer night, maybe with some friends, looking at the stars. It’s what you want to listen to when you feel at ease, in total peace with the world. But above that all, it’s the kind of music that is literally meant to be listened to on a drive home at midnight while you stare out of the window at the night sky. That’s the kind of music Tom makes. And let me tell you something, it’s literally pure heaven, and I’m not even exaggerating there, it truly is. It’s sad and happy at the same time, so peaceful and emotional, both fast and slow and it breaks your heart and mends it right after that. Actually, it’s pretty much impossible to describe his music and to put into words how much I love it. Especially the past months I’ve been listening to his songs 24/7. For me it’s the perfect soundtrack to work to, write texts and so on. Oh and of course it’s amazing for a peaceful, chill cooking session. God, I just love it so much. It makes me want to feel alive, to enjoy my life and experience literally everything. It’s really a pure gift, honestly.

.

I actually came across Tom’s music while watching one of Will’s videos (Will Darbyshire – my photography idol). And I immediately fell for it. Unfortunately it took me quite a while to finally look him up and start listening to his songs, but since then he’s been a stable, seriously. He even was my most listened artist in 2017 – thanks to Spotify for all the analytical stuff – and that’s really saying something. And as I always dedicate posts to my favorite artists, I thought that a post about Tom and his music was well overdue, so here it is.

.

But that’s actually all I’m able to tell you about Tom’s music, as telling you more would just spoil it or wouldn’t do it enough justice. His music speaks enough for itself. You don’t even need my talk, it’s all about his songs. So please, guys, enjoy the following list of my favorite songs by Tom – and yes, it was indeed far too hard to choose, but I did it. And apart from listening to his bloody amazing songs you also get to experience his awesome videos, which are a form of art on themselves, let’s be honest.

So yeah guys, there you go. That’s Tom Rosenthal, one of the biggest musical geniuses out there. I thoroughly hope you enjoy his music as much as I do and that it inspires you. As always, please don’t hesitate to leave your thoughts and comments down below. And yeah, I hope you’re all doing good and wish you an amazing weekend. And, of course, thanks for reading. x


Ps: Here’s a little sneak peek of Tom’s upcoming sleepy album… and yes, it is indeed one of the best one minute music clips ever made.
