Tom Misch shares disco-bop ‘South of the River’, an ode to Peckham

Tom Misch has released new single ‘South of The River’, premiered by Annie Mac. With its funky bass-line, it’s another irresistible disco-bop that nods to Misch’s new direction.

Tom 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.
