This DIY/Indie artist looks to make true believers out of listeners with his new single titled "I Just Can't Believe It's True". This song is from Tom's debut EP, Modern
Devices, that was just recently released March, 2018. You're probably asking yourself though: 'Does this track live up to the hype and will I be convinced?' and I can safely tell you that Tom Esch is not foolin' around and came to play here!
Esch is based in Seattle and so it comes as no surprise to me that Nirvana
is a huge influence on Tom. This musician certainly incorporates that Grunge-era tone on "I Just Can't Believe It's True" but I'd say more of a garage-rock appeal on this number due to the pure rawness of the recording. I even picked up on a bit of a Dave Grohl vocal similarity and overall Foo Fighters
vibe that made the track rock even more. There's a heavy Alternative presence with Pop tendencies thanks to Tom's guitar chords and catchy melodies. Tom's voice and playing hooks you right in from the start as I am left craving more. Honestly, I'm bummed that I couldn't hear the entire EP, Modern
Devices, because I do believe the hype but need more to be fully convinced and a true believer.
I can say that Tom Esch is onto something here because "I Just Can't Believe It's True" has a distinctive quality and simple charm to the song that would attract listeners of all ages. I feel Tom's music can relate to many and identify with people from all walks of life with its classic & hip feel, so I can't wait to see where Tom Esch heads next! In the words of WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle: "Oh it's TRUE, it's DAMN TRUE!"
