ウェールズ出身のシンガーソングライター Tom Jenkinsが、4/22にXtra Mile Recordingsからリリースしたニューシングル 'Magic Mushroom Island'のMVを公開!

Phil Campbell (Motörhead, Bastard Sons)がギターで参加。年内発売予定のニューアルバムでは彼の他に Marc Ford (The Black Crowes), Paul Mullen (YOURCODENAMEIS:MILO, The Automatic)がゲスト参加しているそうです。


“When writing the new album I wanted to slightly break the singer-songwriter mould and go against the indie-folk sound of my first album. “Magic Mushroom Island” draws influences from some of my favourite rock bands, such as Fugazi, Silverchair and Manic Street Preachers. Lyrically, the song is a celebration of strangers in the depth of lockdown. I had not left my farm in the hills of the South Wales Valleys or seen a soul for weeks, until a number of random people started showing up and scouring the fields. Apparently word was getting around a local uni that our fields were rich in Magic Mushrooms and it was quite the hot spot. It reminded me of the film ‘The Beach’ which influenced the title. This random occurrence did bring much joy and laughter with strangers to a somewhat lonely time.”
