All the best parts of folk and pop songwriting converge to tell a story in Tom Speight’s new single ‘My My My’. There’s a lot of heart in the Londoner’s writing, attacking the idea of moving forward – onto something greater.
“I spent nearly two weeks recording in Devon with Chris Bond working on new songs, pretty much the whole of the EP was written over the last couple of months after coming out of a relationship. I had a lot to write about. My My My was the first song from the creative period, it’s about escaping everything and putting stuff behind you from the town you grew up in to the childhood dreams that didn’t maybe work out but looking to a more positive future. It was written while was waiting for a train at Wimbledon Station. I was there for about 30 mins just feeling really excited with the idea of this song. It was very instant and something I hadn’t written before with a different energy. At the time I was listening to a lot of Fleetwood Mac and The Beatles I think their hooks definitely inspired me to write something bolder.” – Tom Speight
