It's a subtle and unassuming folk-pop hook with smart, catchy lyrics. You might call it the Passenger sound, with an uptempo pulse, a delicate background harmony, and immaculate production. It sneaks right into your mind with that acoustic strum and the rhythm pocket, while the vocals just make you want to listen, with not a note out of place.
Sometimes a pop song doesn't have to do too much: a hummable melody, a few moments of perfection, and a beat that feels right. Want You, the new single from Tom Speight, has all of that. With already more than a million monthly Spotify listeners, he is a rising star on the indie scene.
