It’s not even a month since Tom Odell dropped the video for his latest single ‘Magnetised’.
It’s actually little more than a month since the British singer songwriter confirmed the upcoming release of his sophomore album ‘Wrong Crowd’ (due in early June).
But somehow (see what we did there?) he’s found the time to put together a music video for another track from the album, ‘Somehow’.
It’s clear by its length that the track isn’t destined for single status, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not worth the watch. On the contrary, the song is utterly intoxicating; a truly sublime piece of music that’s stripped back to its bare bones of piano, guitar, an inoffensive drum beat and (later) a small string section to allow us to appreciate Tom’s extraordinarily emotive vocal. And the build continues.
Though ‘Magnestised’ will be scoring all the mainstream attention, it’s songs like ‘Somehow’ that will have us bulleting for our nearest retailer when the album drops on Friday June 10.
