Tom A Smith shows his maturity on his festival-ready single 'Weirdo'

Indie Rock songwriter Tom A. Smith has become one of the most exciting new acts in the country, impressing fans with his performances alongside Miles Kane on Soccer AM and across the festival circuit icluding a huge set at Reading and Leeds last year.

Although his Sunderland heritage may mean that he dislikes any Geordie comparisons but, in terms of songwriting, his music radiates a heartfelt honesty that echoes of Sam Fender. Sonically, the production is big and bold. His vocals pack a deep resonance and allow his accented inflections to shine through and offer a more authentic tone. He makes you stand up and listen to every word that he sings before combining with big riffs and punchy drums for statement chorus'.

His latest release ‘Weirdo’ is perhaps is most confident and direct track to date. It has the same driving energy and vocal strength of his past releases yet his lyrics are less cryptic and more obvious as he bares his love for all to see. As he sings the line “I’ve got the strength”, you can here is confidence and self assured songwriting growing by the second.

Still only just 19, he’s now achieved a consistency that far exceeds his years. Perhaps not as grand as his previous releases such as ‘Never Good Enough’ this single is straight up summer-ready! It’s the perfect sunny single that shines with youthful romance arriving just in time for festival season.
