Tom Boy Releases “Sorry for Myself”, His First Single in Four Years


Tom Boy started the summer season strongly, exploring vulnerability and self-awareness in his newest single “Sorry for Myself”. Tom Boy started releasing music in 2018, and this is his first release since “Young and Sad” in 2020. “Sorry for Myself” features heartfelt emotion paired with a celestial soundscape to convey themes of self-reflection and raw honesty.

The song tells the story of coming to terms with owning your actions, whether they were good or bad. Tom Boy’s poignant lyricism stands out in this song. Beginning with themes of self-pity and dejection, Nate Daniels sings “I can’t help feeling sorry for myself”. The song later delves into themes of letting go and moving forward, as Daniels sings “I won’t keep feeling sorry for myself” in the final iteration of the chorus.

Through the progression of the song’s lyrics, Tom Boy creates a resonant sense of introspection. Daniels’ deep vocal emotion, supported by somber guitar chords and atmospheric synths, is the highlight of the piece.

Upon release, the piece received positive feedback on Tom Boy’s Instagram @loveyourtomboy. Fans are happy to see this artist back at it — hopefully this release is the first of many in the near future for Tom Boy.
