I am enjoying this forthcoming track, The Sound of Someone Leaving (with Aaron Martin) by Phil Tomsett, a UK-based musician who is known for his organic sounding, lush and layered soundscapes. “Absence is powerful. When someone isn’t there anymore, the empty space is charged with emotional power. As if the act of vanishing leaves behind an ethereal, supernatural signature,” Tomsett notes. The song is a perfect soundtrack for our pandemic isolation and the changes it has wrought. I can’t wait for the full album to drop in early September.
