Luke Toms - Crazy

"Everybody tells me that I'm too young to know the foxtrot, how to waltz, or even tango"

About halfway between Mika and Rufus Wainwright, with a definite Steve Harley influence, Luke Toms joins the glam rock revival with a more subdued, quirky presentation. He's already released an EP and single, the amazing Bowie-esque ballad Peace By Myself. Crazy is that single's b-side, and falls somewhere between Cockney Rebel and Queen in sound. It's an irreverent little jaunt for sure, but one that transports you back to a different side of the 70's than most of the revivalists these days. Plus, remember that this is a b-side, even though it sounds like a potential hit. I think that alone shows the talent that we're dealing with here. Toms' record isn't out until early July, but I'll tip him right now as one to watch. If he gets it right he could become absolutely massive. And, judging from the hilariously theatrical chorus here, I think he'll do quite alright.
