One after another, artist after artist, The United Kingdom keeps the oven hot with fire new talent. The latest artist to bring things to a bubbly boil is Tom Grennan. He's young, full of looks, and in possession of a robust voice that's a crystal clear rendition of what's called alternative music.
Just before his debut album Lighting Matches, he's released "Barbed Wire." Listening to the song closely, you get a feeling of what the intention is behind the lyrics. Wiser than he looks, he talks about not letting anything hold you back, ensuring you bring people up with you, and kicking back at others who say you can’t. The song is just a taste of what to expect in his upcoming album. To be released on July 6, Brennan will delve into things like sobriety, love, depression, loneliness--something that helps reveal an openness and vulnerable side many might know about him.
Until then, you can catch him performing his high charting songs at different venues. But, don't wait! He's known to be a hot commodity. After having sold out shows at Shepherds Bush Empire and the recent confirmation of his UK tour being sold out, you might want to pencil in getting tickets to see him perform at the top of your list. Once you do that, you'll have just enough time left that you can manage to catch him at a ton of festivals and at his newly announced Brixton Academy headline show.
