After a busy 2016, Leeds-based indie folk musician Dom Robinson starts the year as he means to go on with ‘Good Love’, the first of several new releases.
With a production style evoking the likes of Bon Iver and James Blake, ‘Good Love’ leads the listener through familiar themes of romantic frustration with an honesty and maturity usually associated with more seasoned songwriters.
Subtle instrumentation and layered harmonies form the basis of a progressive arrangement, with crashing cymbals and waves of rich vocals driving the change in dynamic and showcasing a beautifully executed composition. Robinson has a unique ability in combining the sentiment of his old school folk influences while retaining a contemporary and relevant sound.
An exciting first look at what I suspect will be a promising year for the up and coming singer-songwriter.
