Single Review: Teddy Thompson – ‘Looking For A Girl’

2 min read

With a brand new record set for release on January 31st titled Bella as well as an extensive tour of the UK throughout January and February about to get underway, acclaimed singer songwriter Teddy Thompson introduces us to what’s to come on the release with the records first offering, Looking For A Girl.

TeddyThompsonLookingForAGirlBella is the English singers fifth record and follow up to 2008’s A Piece Of What You Need and if Looking For A Girl is anything to develop optimistic expectations from, Bella is set to follow in the successful footsteps of fellow crossover country pop stars, Lady Antebellum by bringing country music into the UK mainstream with its similar easy flowing rhythms and catchy hook laden chorus’.

A relatively unfamiliar name on the mainstream scene, Thompson is a breathe of fresh, Dixie infused air as he brings country and pop together in a three minute romp through the singers country/folk roots.

Vocally, Thompson couldn’t be better. His voice fits the track well and it can’t be faltered. Swinging flawlessly through upbeat versus and a toe tapping chorus while enjoying a ride through a musically elaborate melody and supported by a gentle vocal backing, the singer delivers Looking For A Girl with rewarding results.

The string arrangement that loops seamlessly through an orgy of country layered melodically hooks and a lyrically sentimental body makes Looking For A Girl a pleasing release for a singer we will no doubt be hearing a lot more from in 2011.
