Dom Robinson is rapidly emerging as one of the rising stars on the BBC Introducing circuit.
He has turned his simple DIY home recordings into beautifully crafted works of art, with his dark soundscape working perfectly as the backdrop for his heartfelt, honest lyrics. His airy vocal style has a haunting effect, leaving people comparing him to Nick Drake, Ben Howard and Keaton Henson and showcasing Dom’s musical maturity beyond his years.
“Maturity and craftsmanship were key elements in the construction of Dom Robinson’s first single of 2017 – and it shows. Influenced by Bon Iver and Frightened Rabbit, Robinson takes a meticulous approach to songwriting. On “Good Love” his steady-headed technique firmly anchors the ebbs and swirls of his modern folk sound as he builds immersive layers of vocals over delicate guitar and piano.
“Lyrically “Good Love” seeks to explore the difficulties and challenges presented by romantic relationships and the work it takes to overcome them. “It’s not enough to feel your good love from time to time,” Robinson’s multi-tracked voice laments, effortlessly putting into words that all-too-familiar feeling of dissatisfaction when you’re at a dead end. The song escalates to its crescendo, a whirlwind of all-encompassing voices, then suddenly falls away, ready for you to hit replay.” – The Line of Best Fit
