There’s a lot of emotion and substance to the music that Thomas George creates and this is no exception. My Father’s Eyes is a homage to his father, who had a heart attack and survived last year, and the simplicity to the music works well and the sparse instrumentation lays everything bare for the listener to see – there’s no need for things to be overpowered with technical showy sections – what you see is what you get here.
My Father’s Eyes is a heartfelt and quietly beautiful piece, really striking a chord with you, and the b-side Bar Stools is a nice little addition that completes the single and rounds it all up well. It’s just a rewarding listen and one that you’ll certainly want to keep returning to.
As a whole, this is a great listen and if this is the standard we are to expect with his next full-length release, then we’re all in for an absolute treat!
