We fell for Scottish singer-songwriter Tommy Ashby’s recent Blood Wolf Moon single, its aching melancholy set against this bubbling acoustic guitar, so we were absolutely delighted when he agreed to do an At Home Session for us here at Backseat Mafia and record the track, taken from his forthcoming EP ‘Everywhere is Home’, out this Summer via Wow and Flutter Records.
Of the single, Tommy says “When I was growing-up I was a wallflower. Parties would pin me to a wall and leave me there for the night. I was left wondering how a shy person ever actually meets someone. The internal monologue left running on those nights was so awkward.
I wanted to show how much of falling in love can be done long before two people actually have a conversation. Seeing someone and watching how they act around their friends, the tiny interactions and glances; I think introverts notice more of this stuff because they spend so much time observing. And how much more gravity things can have when they take time to unfold.
Queen Street is the road next to my house in my hometown (Innerleithen). Growing up, I used to walk back from the river late at night and see the moon hanging low in the sky as I turned into my house. It always struck me as kind of magical.”
