Spinning the Compass is the first solo album from London Singer-Songwriter Tom Slatter. A mixture of acoustic indie with steampunk theme and a hint of prog rock experimentation, Spinning the Compass explores themes of love, flying machines, nightmares involving cable cars and steam engine related body horror.

From the upbeat Mechanism, a song about a love affair going wrong after the introduction of steam powered toys, to the convoluted Bad Dreams, via the guitar and synth duet of Two, Tom’s songs never stray from being singable catchy acoustic indie. Yet he’s happy to use his guitar chops and full vocal range to take you on twists and turns that you don’t find in the average pop song.
