I can’t quite grasp why Ed Thomas isn’t more popular, he’s already a finished product. With a meagre 1000 followers on Soundcloud, it’s proof that the number of followers you have, may not exactly be a true testament of ability.
‘Let It Take’s’ composition reminds me of a Blondie record – retro and strikingly familiar – Ed’s voice is captivating and it’s easy to imagine this record on the Radio.
‘Outlaws’ takes the foot off the gas, the extended and crackly voice along with those airy sweeps and a transcending breakdown leave me thinking that Ed Thomas is an extension of The Weeknd meets The XX.
If an album ever does come to light, it’s going to make a hell of an impact on the current chart market. Check out more of Ed Thomas, including links to Soundcloud/Facebook/Twitter HERE.
