Remember when I told you I like to give recent, brand new albums a try whenever I clean the apartment? Well, this is one of those albums providing the soundtrack to this week's chores. And, boy, did it stick! That's why I wanted to share the title song to Tom Odell's Wrong Crowd with you today. Read a bit more about it and watch the official video under the cut!
I've had the album for quite some time, actually, but I sort of lost sight of it due to a lack of time to really really listen to it, and opting for the easy, old playlists instead. The album crossed my mind again on Monday, however, and doing those chores was the perfect opportunity to finally get into it. I find that putting a new album on in the background while you work on something quite easy to do, that doesn't take a lot of concentration while you're at it, really helps appreciate it more fully, don't you?
As for this song; I absolutely love the build-up and the somehow threatening atmosphere surrounding it. It's a bit darker than Odell's other work (without losing the vulnerability I so like about his voice) and it became an instant favourite after that first good listen.
I do know Tom's not for everyone, however, as even I have moments in which I'd rather not listen to this sort of thing. ;-)
So how about you? What's your favourite brand new album these days?
