Hitting play on a new artist can be daunting, but the prelude to Callie Tomblin’s standout single “I Don’t Know You” from their latest album immediately greets you with a comfortingly rhythmic guitar hook which pulls you into a visceral feat of Alt Rock.
With Country, Indie, and Blues all infused into the arrangement, I Don’t Know You has plenty of unpredictable increments of alchemy at the same time as being incredibly accessible.
The nuancedly sublime groove of the Bluesy Rock instrumentals creates the perfect platform for Callie Tomblin’s vocals. The unflinchingly evocative style of the raw vocals allowed me to find reminiscences between Callie and Eddie Vedder’s as they found the perfect combination between rough and smooth.
You can check out I Don’t Know You along with the rest of Callie Tomblin’s second album for yourselves by heading over to Spotify now.
