Tom Misch recently released his new single ‘South of The River’ which was premiered via Annie Mac. With its string arrangements mirroring disco synth stabs and a funky bass line, it’s an irresistible bop that nods clearly to Misch’s danceable new direction.
He has lived in South London all his life, and he loves it so much that his single is dedicated to it. “I much prefer the general vibe of south London,” he says. “I love this area, Peckham, Dulwich, Forest Hill. Singing that line — You should come south of the river — it just felt really good.”
Tom began teasing fans with clips of early versions of ‘South of The River’ on his Instagram profile which led to a keys player from New York called Rob Araujo recreating his own version.
He ended up playing the solo over the top of the song and uploaded it to his own profile which caught the attention of Tom and subsequently made it onto the final version of ‘South of The River’.
South London is bursting with creativity, new artists are refusing the conventional music industry model – they’re collaborating and releasing freely, driven by the power of the internet.
Tom is part of a truly exciting scene which also includes rising stars such as, Loyle Carner, Carmody, Jordan Rakei, Zak Abel, Laura Misch, Poppy Ajudha, Cosmo Pyke and Rex Orange County.
Tom Misch has announced two London shows which include Ronnie Scott’s on Thursday October 19th, and Printworks on Friday October 20th. Tickets go on sale 9.00am Friday 21st July.
