Having worked as a songwriter with artists like Sigma, Jorja Smith and Maverick Sabre, London artist Ed Thomas is no amateur in crafting a world of halcyon juxtapositions. The Brit’s new song “Hollywood” is an exploration of what heights he can take his polychromatic style to.
Thomas’ soulful croon is reminiscent of fellow Brit Sam Smith’s tenor, but he employs an electrifying battalion of bass and drum beats that gives his sound remarkable distinction. Tenacious guitar rifts shoot out electrifying chords for Thomas to balance a range of charging highs and pacifying lows with his vocals. Between Thomas’ voice and halcyon instrumentals, “Hollywood” is an electrifying trance, taking the listener through a prismatic course of tranquil peaks and valleys. The track is lifted from Thomas’ new EP of the same name.
