Earlier this year, we introduced you to the amazingly talented singer and song-writer Flynn Marks. He has now gone on to recently release his eagerly anticipated exceptional new EP, 'Cold Comfort.'
The EP is made up of five original tracks and inevitably marks the beginning of a new chapter in his music career. One thing that is particularly prominent about all of his releases to date is that he has a very raw and stripped-back sound. The songs on this EP are no different and are very captivating, with the ability to draw you in instantly.
The production of the EP is very bare and wistful, allowing for Flynn Marks' vocals to be showcased to their fullest extent possible. There is a lot of emotion showcased throughout the five-track collection, and is a true credit to his phenomenal talent. Having been likened to artists such as James Bay and Lewis Capaldi, the future of Flynn Marks' career no doubt looks brighter than ever.
Another thing that is particularly impressive about Flynn Marks' music is that he wants to connect with listeners. The EP is something that listeners can relate to in one way or another, particularly with the emotive lyrics and sheer emotion in each of the tracks. It is clear that his song-writing is very personal to him, but he wants anyone who listens to his music to feel emotion and imprint their own feelings into each song of his.
"Cold Comfort is a five-track EP which attempts to shine a light into the darkest corners of relationships, drinking too much and the fallout, and all the snakes and ladders that lead us toward poor mental health.
Ultimately though, it's more about the positive lessons I've learned, rather than just getting burned. It was compiled in isolation, with only carnage of the pandemic for a backdrop. I know it's not much, but it's frank and honest. Hopefully it'll resonate with people and bring a little 'Cold Comfort' to what can be considered a very challenging year."
'Cold Comfort' is out now and can be purchased and streamed through all major responsible music purchasing and streaming outlets.
