‘For None To See’ is a traditional indie-folk framed – stripped down to a core of personal revelry – tells a story of stories, familiar in tone, but never close enough to embrace for you departed view of life. It’s a manic reminder to tell yourself to wake to the world now and forever. See the things that matter, before it’s too late.
One of his tracks from this, ‘Enough to Drink’, was recently played on BBC Somerset. Lyrical content is particularly important to Tomo, and he combines powerful, literary lyricism with emotive musicality to produce an act which has been described as “very engaging and atmospheric” by Gerard Langley of The Blue Aeroplanes.
Loss is forever. And even if you can get it back, it’s not the exact original. Savor what you have now. Tenderly protect, console, and help it to bring joy.
Beautifully gentle weepings of sentimental songwriting, indeed.
Tomo is an indie/folk singer-songwriter, based in Bristol, UK. Taking inspiration from a wide range of influences, including Radical Face, Shane Macgowan, Leonard Cohen and Charles Bukowski, among others, he is currently working on his debut EP, ‘Wayward Son’, due for release later this year.
