Tom Sail – Wounded

The haunting opening tones of Tom Sailโ€™s second single Wounded remind me of Jamaicaโ€™s I Think I Like U 2. Not because they sound the same, but because both are fun, up-beat, indie-pop songs with a retro feel.

Sail played every instrument on Wounded himself. โ€œI come from a very musical family, and taught myself to play since I was 10 years old,โ€ he says. โ€œSome of the ideas for my music were generated during a six-month trip through South-East Asia, Australia and America and written in the back of a camper van on a tiny guitar I bought in Vietnam.โ€

Heโ€™s currently working on a 12-song album to be released later this year. Expect echoes of The Beatles, The War on Drugs, Oasis and Motown in Sailโ€™s music. Asked by to describe his upcoming album in five words, he answered:ย โ€œRetro. Melancholic. Hopeful. Dreamy. Pensive.โ€
