Indie Only Transparant Vinyl
Brit and Ivor Novello award winning songwriter, plus platinum-selling, chart-topping artist Tom Odell’s fourth album, ‘monsters’.
After a dark period of mental health stalked most of his 2018 and 19. Slowly but surely, Odell alchemised that experience into a new album. He also realised his broader lyrical horizons needed to be matched by a musical expansion, with a lot of the songs on the album leaning into a more electronic, bedroom pop sound. It was a move underpinned by both necessity and a desire to explore. And while his new music is at times heavy, there’s a lightness of touch that means Odell is able to pull off pop’s greatest trick; hiding sadness in the melodies. In this strangest of times this new music represents the start of chapter two in Odell’s ongoing musical journey.
