London alt-soul artist/producer, Ed Thomas is an exciting new talent sure to appeal to fans of James Blake, Sam Smith, and Jessie Ware. The track “Hurt” has just surfaced online. Its opening moments are barren and atmospheric ala James Blake who Thomas does share similarity to both tonally and stylistically, but soon enough the chorus arrives steering the song into a soulful, Sam Smith style territory. The song’s warm and smooth production (think Jessie Ware’s ‘Devotion’) made up of thick pads and electro-beats is the perfect platform for Thomas’ soulful vocals and melodies from yesteryear. At only 3:36 in duration, “Hurt” leaves you eager for more. Be sure to keep an ear out for Ed Thomas throughout 2014.
