‘Out of My Mind’ is a song about the cycle of life about finding your ‘soul partner’. It explores that conflict of making the right choice against London’s cinematic backdrop. This release is building open his previous single release ‘Prodigal Son’ that gained much critical praise for its lavish arrangement and attention to detail.
Andy Smythe is a British singer/songwriter who has been active on the London folk scene since the ‘90s. London, however, isn’t Smythe’s hometown; he is originally from Shropshire, England. But London is where Smythe developed a small but enthusiastic following. Known for his reflective, contemplative lyrics, Smythe has a variety of influences — some British, some American, some neither British nor American. In the British media, Smythe has often been compared to the late Nick Drake, and other valid comparisons have included Donovan, Tim Buckley, and Van Morrison (who is neither British nor American but rather, Irish). Smythe has cited Bob Dylan as an inspiration, and in fact, there are echoes of the seminal Dylan in some of Smythe’s lyrics (although Dylan has a rougher, harder, grittier vocal style, while Smythe’s expressive singing tends to be on the gentle side). At times, Smythe incorporates Celtic elements, which explains why he has enjoyed some favorable coverage in the Irish media.
