Tom Craven-Let it Fall (My December)
Tom Craven has a sound that imbibes Bruce Springsteen for the new generation. Craeating an impressive following almost exclusively by touring, he is the people’s musician. Not letting the pandemic derail his dreams, he has continued and rambled through, projecting his true love for music, composition and life. Translating moments through melodies is something he is proficient at. Let it Fall (My December) shows us all sides of this musician through a beautiful song.
You might wonder how artists coped with being holed up in their homes during the pandemic. An artist like Tom Craven chooses to revisit his favourite music, create poetry and set it in motion. If you’re staring at the spokes of this wheel, each dynamic element translates to an experience learnt. A bluesy sound surrounds his latest single, while it deviates, divulges and flows like a creek’s tributaries. The percussive chugging of the guitar ticks with time, while his unique voice is the most honest rendition of the lyrics you can ever hear. Tom doesn’t complicate the song, if anything, you could cover it within the evening. Accessible music is what is emblazoned in permanence, and Tom is an artist who reaches out to make it so.
I urge you to check out his curated playlists as well. Not only do you see the inspiration streaming from it, but it is a splendid collection of underrated artists and underground songs.
I’d have love to have heard this song on As Good As It Gets, a brilliant movie by all accounts. The easygoing nature of this track also allows simplistic transition within scenes. Listen to true indie artist brilliance with his 2018 EP Take Courage, among other image-rich tracks. Follow him for more music like this!
