SONG OF THE DAY Old Smile – Maybe Someone Will Come By


a3725633484_10It’s been a mellow week whilst I’ve been away so I thought I’d ease myself back into the swing of things with a song of equal smoothness!

Going by the name Old Smile, Tom Herman is a New Jerseyan artist who writes and records his own music with a fresh, diverse DIY ethic.  His lo-fi sound is steeped in psych-rock whilst he cites influences such as Thee Oh Sees, Tame Impala, Timber Timbre, Charles Bradley and Deerhunter; these elements all detectable in his psychedelia, soul, funk and Indie sound.

Releasing this brand new track only days ago, ‘Maybe Someone Will Come By’ drifts in on the lightweight acoustics of a guitar, soon joined by the gentle rattle of a tambourine and a subtle but defining beat; the perfect accompaniment to Old Smile’s cool, laid-back vocals. Listen above.

Also check out the contrasting, more upbeat and psyched-out sound of Sleeping Dancing World,’ the first Old Smile track I covered in February this year.
