Warning Signs - Tom Collins Single Cover

WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM TOM COLLINS – WARNING SIGNS

The world needs more records like ‘Warning Signs’ by Tom Collins. 

In a world that seems to be all about the latest uber-cool band reinventing absolutely nothing and usually doing it quite shabbily, there’s scant regard given to the pop record and even less regard for the guitar-driven indie pop record. So if you’re in the camp that feels perfect, pure, unpretentious, heart on your sleeve, teenage road movie soundtrack pop music is a genre you want to avoid then you definitely shouldn’t listen to ‘Warning Signs’ from Tom Collins, the latest musical export from North Wales.

‘Warning Signs’ is a wonderful chant-along, unpretentious indie pop banger. the kind of tune that will have you winding the window down, turning the music up and putting your foot down. The perfect soundtrack to a summer morning drive to Lligwy Beach.

At times, in terms of delivery and timing, Tom’s vocals appear almost awkward, yet it works wonderfully. Don’t be mistaken, this is no reality TV era auto-tuned kid. Tom can sing. There are some big BIG notes hit here, all done for the benefit of the track, not Tom’s ego.

Whilst Tom may cite Sam Fender, Jamie Webster and Catfish and the Bottlemen as influences the track has much more of a mid-eighties Cali-Pop feel to it. It’s a feel that suits the throwaway love song lyrics perfectly and is sure to continue to build on Tom’s well-deserved, and well-earned airplay. 

Without doubt, it’s one for your summer playlist.
