Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Tom Sail. I discovered this artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I instantly loved the lyrics of his songs.
We are faced with a great storyteller.
Words have a great weight in the music of Tom Sail and light sounds gently accompany the poems of this artist. These refined but simple sounds, perfectly recorded, help to create even more magic in Sail’s compositions.
The fine but strong voice accompanies you in this journey through timeless emotions.
Suddenly you are no longer in your living room listening to music.
Suddenly your eyes are veiled and you begin to wander with your mind imagining unknown places, imagining people you will never meet.
You move away from everyday life for a moment and dream of a different life.
This is the objective that every artist should aim at, to make their listeners dream.
Tom Sail is a singer and songwriter originally from Manchester and currently based in Kentish Town, North London. After fronting BBC Introducing favourites band Jolanga for 5 years, Tom Sail has now turned his attention to his melodic and more considered solo career. His relatable style combines catchy melodies and thoughtful lyrics, influenced by Dylan’s storytelling and Adam Granduciel’s dreamy soundscapes. ‘Please Be Cruel’, recorded in his home studio during lockdown, shifts in a more earnest and introspective direction and engages an appropriate melancholy and build reflective of the past year. The single is set to be released on November 27th 2020.
His previous singles include Hold Me Closer and Two Weeks, released on his own Grim Fandango Records, and his previous shows include a sold out show at The Old Blue Last, The Finsbury and Manchester Academy 3. His new single Please Be Cruel is out on Friday 27th November, and his Album “All There Is, Is This…” is due out in 2021.
