Tom The Lion “Silent Partner” (Video)

Thought provoking new from Tom The Lion featuring a young deaf lady signing the words. The track builds from restrained subtle electronic backdrop and soft aching vocals to a stunning cinematic plateau of introspective intricacies. Vocally many people are saying Thom Yorke but there’s also a bit of Antony from Antony & The Johnsons in there I reckon. Incredibly subtle and downbeat but the refrains here and the repeating downward spiraling guitar are enough to stick in the mind and get under the skin and to get you to that final reward when repeat listening when Tom becomes like a voice in your head and his music a consoling force.
