Hailing from a family of creatives that includes his mom, Carol Misch (a visual artist), plus his sisters Laura Misch (a fellow singer/musician) and Polly Misch (an actress), it's not a stretch to say that talent is imprinted in Tom Misch's DNA. The London-bred producer/musician/beatmaker/singer is barely into his twenties, yet many consider him a fixture in the current UK music scene. A sonic stroll through his current body of work, along with an impressive list of collaborative detours (Jordan Rakei, Marie Dahlstrom, Alfa Mist, Emmavie, Carmody and Loyle Carner to name a few), exhibits an unfaltering commitment to his craft. And now that he's announced his long-awaited debut album Geography, due next spring, we're expecting to hear his best work yet.
Fanning the flames of our anticipation is his newest release "Movie," the lead single from the forthcoming project. The track begins with a bit of dramatic flair, thanks to a monologue by Tom's sister Polly as a bluesy guitar strums in the background. Over downtempo percussion and lingering synth chords, Tom's aching vocals give us all the feels as he replays scenes of his old relationship and pines for his lover to return. "It kills me to see you leave / So I came home and made this beat / Baby, come back to me / Come back to me," he pleads. A jazzy piano solo transforms the soulful slow jam into a sultry groove as he coos, "Remember me, let's set the scene/ You and me, what could've been / Still swimming in a lovers' dream / Still playing on the movie screen."
Whether you're looking add some heat to your Netflix & Chill playlist, or hoping for something to last beyond cuffing season, this "Movie" is definitely worth the price of admission.
