Thom Byles – In Your Blood

2016 should be the year of the long-awaited comeback of Bon Iver, but in the meantime there seems to be someone else who is trying to do his best to prevent us from missing him. It’s the case of half English/half Mexican (but based in London) singer/songwriter Thom Byles and his new single In Your Blood. This is not the same old acoustic folk song that you should be tired of listening to. Au contraire, it includes all the elements that give the same depth and atmosphere of Justin Vernon’s best episodes: intense falsetto vocals, unworldly fingerpicking and that amazing feeling of losing yourself alone up on a mountain, surrounded only by nature.
