Artist: Pat Dam Smyth
Label: Monumental Music Group
This week Pat Dam Smyth is back with his new single Friends, which is the latest track to be taken from his debut album The Great Divide.
Friends is a track that blends elements of folk and punk as well as a dash of rock to create a truly superb song that has a real epic feel to it.
There is also a truthful element to this song as Smyth sings about the importance and value of real friendships - something he realised after his withdrawal from society suffering from melophobia (a fear of music).
There is a laid back start to this record but when the guitars kick in just short of the minute mark the song really bursts into life.
From this point Friends is a song that is bursting with energy - the guitars on this track really is fantastic and really drives the song forward.
Smyth is an artist that we should all be very excited about as he is a very truthful type of songwriter - not to mention his vocal on this is great.
Friends is one of the best singles that will be released this autumn and I am excited to hear the rest of the debut album.
