After smashing the festival circuit in 2017, Tom Misch has announced a headline tour for March 2018 – tickets on sale here. Tom’s highly anticipated debut album ‘Geography’ via his own label Beyond The Groove is due April 6th.
The first track to be lifted from the album is ‘Movie’, a melodic ode to romance written by Tom and his long-term collaborator Carmody, and featuring guest vocals at the start by Tom’s sister Polly Misch. Listen below.
The track displays a different side to Tom’s music as his calming voice lulls the listener into a daydream, giving us a taster of what is to come with the release of ‘Geography’.
The idea for the track came to fruition with Tom wanting to base the song around old classic movies and the charm that came with them. The upcoming visual for ‘Movie’, is a culmination of old footage from Tom’s grandparents in Germany in the 1940’s, adding a personal narrative for Tom and his music.
The artwork was created by Tom’s mother Carol who has consistently contributed to visuals for his earlier releases. The silhouettes of Tom facing himself represent challenging himself to create a new landscape in his different moods and stages of creativity.
‘Geography’ is an exploration of a musical landscape, named after a passion of Tom’s which was never pursued, it dances between genres including Disco, Soul, Hip-Hop and Jazz, a true testament to Tom’s diverse sound and genre fluidity.
Having self-released all music to-date (Beat Tape 1, Beat Tape 2, Reverie EP and 5 Day Mischon), multi-instrumentalist Tom Misch is one of many South London artists refusing the conventional music industry model. Collaborating freely, driven by the power of the internet.
