A soulful/rhythm and blues piece, vibrant and full of sparkling energy, MF Tomlinson chooses old school sounds for “Last Days of Rome“, a song that sums up his Weltanschauung in the London of this new decade.
Soft electric piano chords and organ carpets stratify a harmonic solution that directly transmits its energy, MF’s voice has a vivid presence and an authentic character that makes it powerful and identified in the context, highlighting even more the message of his song, his personal vision of what is happening around us, symbolically compared to the collapse and decay of an empire that is imploding at the end of its historical course.
But the feeling that arises from listening to this piece is very different from feeling disoriented and helpless in the face of the institutional involutions we are witnessing in many parts of the western world, instead it seems to bear in itself the seed of hope, and what a better mean than a song for its complete and desirable diffusion. I heard that the best way to appreciate MF Tomlinson's music is to go to his live performances, his shows are enthralling and captivating, thanks to his charisma and the presence of valid musicians coming from many parts of the world, the next one ? : https://www.facebook.com/events/621938215238955/Nando Dorelassi
