Tom Aspaul – Good Together
A while back I read a piece about meeting people in life — why some stay and why others go. I wish I had it in front of me to recite. When I first found it, the string of words felt so powerful and understanding of where I was. The message that stuck, the one I think back to, is the idea of belonging with certain someones on different levels at conflicting times. Some as friends, others as lovers, and those as somethings in between. I think we find these people throughout life, usually under the strangest of circumstances and at the most trying of times, and they walk in to help us feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence or fate, but it definitely has me believing in something.
Anyways, it was this song by London-based singer/songwriter that got me thinking about it. Tom Aspaul’s style is refreshing and approach is uplifting. His soulful but futuristic vocals glide effortlessly over smooth galactic beats, introducing a new vision for funkyfied pop.
