Tom Odell – Songs From Another Love [EP]

Tom Odell evokes something deep within his learned soul on the new Songs From Another Love EP. The 21 year old singer-songwriter delivers his tune with a heartfelt candor and vocal that (so far) can hold it’s own with the best of post-Buckley proteges (Yorke, Bellamy, Martin, etc.) And while we’d think it’s safe to bet that Odell has worn through countless copies of Grace and Parachutes, his beacon of authenticity is pretty undeniable. From the relatable angst of “Another Love” to the vulnerability of “Can’t Pretend”, Tom Odell can summons a listener unsuspectingly with his powerful stories through voice and piano. How can you not listen to a writer so dialed-in and so capable?
