Tom Misch is very pleased to share a new video for It Runs Through Me. The standout track is lifted from Tom’s acclaimed, Top 10 debut album, Geography.
The video was directed by Joshua Osborne, and features appearances by Pos from De La Soul, Yussef Dayes on drums, and a cameo from Reuben James who played piano on the original, early version of it Runs Through Me.
Commenting on the video, Tom explained: “I’ve recently been listening to a lot of funk and soul from the 70s and 80s.. But I also love the aesthetics of this era and wanted to incorporate it into the video.”
It’s been a breakthrough year for young South London artist/producer, Tom Misch. His debut album, Geography, nestled itself neatly into the UK top 10 on release this Spring, and following a series of sold-out global tours (including two nights at London’s Roundhouse), he hits the road again across the UK in November, taking in two huge nights at London’s O2 Academy Brixton which are now sold out.
Written and produced by Tom in his bedroom studio, Geography marries his love for jazz, funk, disco and soul music with a dizzying array of collaborators from De La Soul to Loyle Carner. Geography might flit across a variety of different categories, but ultimately it belongs in a genre all of its own.
The album is also quite the family affair. Tom’s mum provided the artwork for many of Tom’s releases to date including the album itself, his sister Polly, an actress, provides spoken word vocals on album highlight ‘Movie’, and his sister, Laura Misch, supported Tom on his last European/UK tour too. His broader band should also receive their dues, a veritable melting pot of exquisite musicians: Rob Araujo (Keys), Paul Castelluzzo (Guitar), Reuben James (Keys), Tobie Tripp (Strings), Jamie Houghton (Drums), Carmody (BVs), Jaz Karis (BVs), Johnny Woodham (Trumpet), Polly Misch (Spoken Word), Abbey Smith (BVs).
Geography is dynamic, sonically diverse, and agreeably adventurous. An album of the year. Tom Misch is its master architect, and a real, extraordinary young British talent.
