From impressing blogs with an experimental EP he released for free in 2014, Thomston went onto hone in on his song writing and craft effortlessly written pop songs. His debut album Topograph 2016 was recorded over five cities in three continents, keeping the bedroom intimacy that he had delivered with his homegrown releases but going bigger.
2018, we were introduced to a more fearless artist. His first taste Acid Rain was the sounds of him “letting go” with a soaring chorus over some of his most minimal self-production to date. His next taste The Heights similarly liberating, an elevating, weightless pop song that came after a “dark period”. Ushering in a bolder era, a very promising era that he’s describing as the sound of being “self-assured and thriving”.
In exposing himself as an artist but also creating music that can resonate with the masses. 2019 will be no different for Thomston and the release of his new single Lightweight.
With over 90 million streams under his belt, no mean feat for an artist still in his very early 20’s. Thomston has promised tracks in the double digits for 2019, a sense of structure and cohesion to the transformative process he’s been working towards, over the course of his short but hugely celebrated career.
