Leyton Thomas unveils the mesmerizing 'Screwcap Diet', an indie dream pop gem

  • 2 min read

Leyton Thomas, the Manchester-based indie dream-pop artist, has once again woven a sonic tapestry that mesmerizes and enchants with his latest single, 'Screwcap Diet'. Drawing inspiration from a diverse array of musical influences including Mazzy Star, Radiohead, The Verve, and Sigur Ros, Thomas concocts a hauntingly beautiful composition that delves into the complexities of human health and mindfulness.

Throughout 'Screwcap Diet', Thomas masterfully intertwines intricate guitar lines with his soft falsetto vocals, creating an ethereal atmosphere that pulls listeners into the depths of introspection. The single reflects on society's tendency to only recognize the value of health in its absence, exploring the shadows of sickness while ultimately offering a glimpse of the light of mindfulness.

As Thomas explains, “This release is a return to the melodic guitar music that I grew up with. It is a reflection of a feeling that every single human being experiences- that when you are ill, be it seriously ill or plagued with a common cold, everything superficial seems insignificant, and all you wish for is your health. It poses the question, who are we when we are left with just our mind and tired body?”

Recorded in Thomas' own home studio and expertly mixed by Will Levison, 'Screwcap Diet' is a testament to the artist's commitment to authenticity and artistic integrity. With previous releases showcasing his versatility and courage to traverse genre boundaries, Thomas continues to carve out a unique space in the music scene.

As Thomas continues to captivate audiences with his enchanting compositions, he solidifies his position as an artist of remarkable talent and unwavering authenticity. With 'Screwcap Diet', he invites listeners on a transcendent musical journey that promises to linger in the mind long after the final notes fade away.
