In the standout single, Adored, from his debut EP, I Think I Love Myself, the singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, T-Mos the Scribe, wrapped his spoken word rap verses around intricately melodic indie folk instrumentals to deliver a hit of pure poetic innovation.
With a soundscape that hits the cathartic spot with as much precision as Frightened Rabbit and The Twilight Sad, it is all too easy to lock into the up-and-coming independent artist’s quick-witted cadences as they use the power of metaphor to evoke sticky-sweet visceral emotions.
Using the fact that everyone wants to be adored, which was probably how the Stone Roses’ hit I Wanna Be Adored became a timeless indie playlist staple, T-Mos the Scribe conjured something sublime with the seminal track on his debut release, which was written, created, and produced completely independently.
Adored is now available to stream on Spotify.
