Tom Vamos – Magnet Shield – EP Review

Tom Vamos - Magnet Shield

Tom vamos - magnet shield

This EP requires an understanding before you can appreciate. Upon first listening it seems like it is recorded on a 4-track in a rehearsal room...and then you find out you're correct.

There is a warmth to the songs. A new familiarity.

Penned in Ireland, recorded in England? Magnet Shield tells stories in the effervescent Vamos pop-punk style. If you don't know this check out this. This is Tom solo and backed by Sheepy band.

Old, like retro feels. File next to Lemonheads B-sides, Daniel Johnston tapes, Nirvana bootlegs and Pixies demos.

Draws you in.
