EP - XXX

The story behind XXX

XXX is the first EP created by Thomas J Splinter and is written, composed and sung completely by his own hand and voice. He started working on the EP mid 2017 and continued to work on his EP  next to his management study. His EP was finished in November and the voice was  recorded in December just 3 weeks before the release date. 

For inspiration Thomas went to the city. Amsterdam, the capital city of The Netherlands, feels like home. every step and every place there is always something interesting going on. Thomas witnessed several situations but also led his daily life in Amsterdam. To process the busy thoughts of the city, Thomas went on several hikes in the massive quiet mountains of Slovenia and Italy where he could place all his findings and feelings, then when returned in the Netherlands, the songs would pour out.

XXX

If you are in Amsterdam there is such a great vibe and all the people there are different. XXX is a song that is ment to get your feet on the dance-floors of Amsterdam to share the amazing vibe!

Stormy Nights (Stormy Edition)

Do you ever feel like you are more comfortable indoors when there is a storm raging on outside? Stormy Nights gives you a nice story for this situation, so grab a blanket and get cozy!

Fade Away

This song describes the hard reality of the world we live in today. Every forest every ocean and every animal is in danger because of our behavior. This song is ment to show what's next if we don't change the way we live.... 

A spot in Amsterdam

This song tells a joyful story about a day in Amsterdam. The story wil take you into the city of Amsterdam. When the song is over the story is told and you might recognize your own personal spot, somewhere in Amsterdam..

The Painting in the Sky

Imagine you are on the beach, a cool summer breeze is whispering in your ear. As you alk down to the water you see the sky. All the colors are mixed into one, birds fly around. You want to share this experience with your loved one.
Its like a fairytale

A certain kind of Devil 

The man who has it all. Always in style, always in a good mood. The real casanova. When his fans arrive they cant wait to get on a picture with him and af course get his autograph. ACKOD is the most swingy song yet by Thomas!

Name and Artwork

The name is rather different than most tracks or EP names due to the many meanings of XXX But for Thomas it means Amsterdam. When you take a look around you in Amsterdam you will see the triple X everywhere because it is the weapon of the city


Thomas decided to create his own artwork based on the city itself. as you look at the artwork you can see that everything has a connection to Amsterdam. 



Smile!
