Tom Auton releases latest single 'Victim of the Groove' // review

Back in January we published our top nine artists to watch this year, one of them being Cardiff’s very own Tom Auton. The singer-songwriter and producer, along with his band The Bottlebreakers, have released a brand new single ‘Victim of the Groove’ and believe me when I say it’s a good one.

'Victim of the Groove', which is self-produced, is a full-pelt rock anthem with a bluesy hue. It's a rip-roaring exploration of self-doubt told through sonically rich vocals and a plethora of distorted bass riffs set to really project them to new territories; think Royal Blood, Nothing But Thieves. It's highly addictive and a guaranteed crowd-pleaser for when things return to normal - and I cant wait to hear it. He's totally outdone himself with this one and I'm looking forward to seeing what's next.

Speaking of the track, Tom says: “Victim of the Groove ironically explores the hatred I have towards myself, when I can’t write a new song. I explore this hatred… by writing a new song. Throughout the verses I frivolously wallow in a pool of self-pity, tearing myself down at every line. Then get to the pre-chorus, i explain that self-doubt is part and parcel of being a musician.”
