Discovery: Tom Auton

Tom Auton is a Cardiff, Wales-based alternative rock singer songwriter who recently had the pleasure of supporting Feeder during their hometown gig in Newport. His latest rip-roaring track is called Devil On My Shoulder.

By Graeme Smith

Suitably macabre, Devil On My Shoulder has a down and dirty feel about it. The riffs are scuzzy and the bass is heavy. Tom’s vocals elevate it all though, smooth and passionate, they come into their own during an anthemic chorus.

Tom takes his cues from the likes of Queens of the Stone Age and Royal Blood and fans of their style of rock will enjoy what Tom is putting out. There is also a commercial pop edge to his music. Frankly, I think everyone should check him out.
