Society of Sound: Tom Hickox

The April release on Bowers & Wilkins Society of Sound is the second album by Tom Hickox, entitled 'Monsters In The Deep'.

Of his debut record, The Daily Telegraph said “Tom Hickox is the most powerful and original lyrical songwriter this country has produced in years” and this follow up album sees Hickox stretching out and fully availing himself of the possibilities presented by each song.

A key objective for Hickox was to create an album that you could play for the first time and not have any idea what the next song would sound like on the basis of the one before it. The result is a diverse, highly engaging and multi-layered record from an artist who clearly enjoys observing the never-ending human drama unfolding around him, yet manages to reveal an awful lot of himself in the process.
