A gruffer sound than much of the material previous featured by Richard Lomax & The Tontine – Choose Your Own Adventure, the title track and A side has a Southern blues interface with fused guitar grazing around the room prior to opening up to plucked glassbell echoing strings which gives the song a sublime balance of layering while the vocal delivers contemplation of becoming too easily trapped and wrapped in others ideas of life.

A welcome addition to the collection and as always I look forward to where Richard Lomax & The Tontine head next.

In advance, a new track from the forthcoming album has been made available – I Cycle.




Perhaps taking the track to a literal sense, threading through the number lays what sounds like the clack of a cycle wheel spinning on a Derailleur gear-chain as I Cycle brightens the room with its lightness of tone though, as with much of the material, the lyric is of more acerbic content.

Bottom string of the guitar features significantly, giving the track its sprightly feel as a trotting percussion invites the listener to bob on hip as though a Last Night Of The Proms attendee, whilst the vocal pirouettes around the octaves and as I look out of the window, to an overcast drizzly sky, I am certain I can see shafts of sunlight seeking to join in with I Cycle.
