Tom Misch announces the release of his highly anticipated debut album ‘Geography’ via his own label Beyond The Groove / Kobalt Music Recordings for an April 6th release. 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 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 fruiti on with Tom wanti ng to base the song around old classic movies and the charm that came with them. The upcoming visual for ‘Movie’ is a culminati on of old footage from Tom’s grandparents in Germany in the 40’s adding a personal narrati ve for Tom and his music. The artwork was created by Tom’s mother Carol who has consistently contributed to visuals for his previous releases. The silhouettes of Tom facing himself represent challenging himself to create a new landscape in his diff erent moods and stages of creativity. Woven in with ideas of contour lines and illusion we see one thing, then another, in the same way that music has its own multi layered language.
STAFF COMMENTSBarry says: Silky smooth slow-mo lounge, simmering soulful vocals and Misch's undeniable ear for melody and counterpoint. Shuffling percussion slowly works away behind beautifully warm atmospheric ambience. As soulful as they come.
