Tommy Newport is a singer/songwriter, originally from Manchester, a city in the northwest of England, who later relocated with his family to the United States, and is currently based in Wichita, Kansas. Today I will be reviewing his latest track, Yellow Lines which was released on January 15th 2021.
‘Yellow Lines’ opens with a distorted, guitar fuelled melody that’s equally parts jaunty and chill, it flows into a harder, heavier beat that compliments Newport’s vocals perfectly. There’s something about this track that just sticks with you, it’s not just that it’s catchy and has a tremendous rhythm to it, but you just kinda get caught up in it. I have this habit of listening to a track a half dozen or so times before I sit down to review a track and then listen to it while I’m writing the review, an opinion forms over those listens, but with this one I had such a strong reaction to it from the offset that it all those extra listens were just because I liked it so much. I think what strikes me most is the energy, it’s never too busy, but there is this clearly defined energy, straining, to burst forth, and it’s that energy I feel that sweeps you away as you listen. Now I’m not sure if this is the route Newport wants to go down, but this really feels like soundtrack material, it just has the right vibe to go along with some powerful visuals.
So that’s what I thought of Tommy Newport’s single ‘Yellow Lines’ and if you want to check that out for yourself head on over to Spotify. Make sure and support the artist by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or by visiting their website.
