From the release Travels, Tom Flynn brings you the track “Automatic People”. This is a singer/songwriter type song with elements from pop, rock and folk. This particular blend of genres fits his voice perfectly and the result is a song that gets stuck in your head. I promise!
Travels is an album containing 10 tracks, in other words “Automatic People” is just one out of many treasures you can check out from Tom Flynn.
We live in a world where technology is taking over. We don't have to look back many years to find a time where recording music was expensive and only a few musicians in the world got to experience a high level recording of their music. That's the upside.. The downside is that we, the people of the world get more distant from the core of humanity and what makes us human, I feel that Tom captures the “slave by the clock and phones” state of living perfectly in this track.
There is a whole world outside, but all we do is burry ourselves in our phones or other devices.
The tone is mid- to uptempo and the chord progression creates a happy kind of style, blended with the more serious and (at times) dark lyrics, it creates a great singalong-popsong with a message. I love it.
