You noticed it, in the video with Tom and Fkj-Losing My Way. U.K sensation, Tom Misch’s sultry vocal performance-incantive, subtle, riveting, strong? Misch and Fkj voices together-tao te ching-the Yang and Yin of musicology. I would, with you all at my side, watch these two on tour any day of the week. Tom is musician to be reckoned with, listened to, respected. He has the YouTube follows and likes to prove something is happening in the Misch Family tradition.
An accomplished multi-instrumentalist, Tom Misch studied jazz guitar at a Conservatoire of Music. A single year, however, proved enough before his attention switched to his own bedroom productions. This debut album perfects a blueprint explored on early acclaimed EPs and singles: unhurried vocals complementing a cross-pollination of deeply attractive pop, jazz, and hip-hop. And the highlights come thick and fast. “Man Like You” and “You’re On My Mind” will illuminate candlelit bedrooms, while Loyle Carner pays tribute to the pair’s South London roots over a hypnotic sax loop on the funk-flecked “Water Baby”. The album’s warm and celebratory mood peaks, however, with De La Soul’s weightless “It Runs Through Me” verses.
