The exciting London-based singer/songwriter who is fusing grungy funk with dark pop, today Tom Tripp drops ‘Glow’.
The second single from Tripp’s upcoming Flag EP, which follows 2017’s breakthrough RED collection, ‘Glow’ debuted on Thursday.
Premiered by Mistajam on BBC Radio 1Xtra last night, ‘Glow’ has echoes of The Weeknd as Tripp continues to evolve his punchy self-production singing, “I choose today to run away, and find a place where I’ll be safe, I’d rather die than go insane”.
Landing with a James Callum directed music video, Tripp’s second in two weeks following July’s sizzling ‘TAM’, ‘Glow’ is the latest taste from an up-and-coming artist who has been turning heads ever since being plucked up by Mura Masa in 2017. Featuring on the big-name producer’s Grammy nominated self-titled debut album with ‘helpline’, the past three years have seen Tripp burrowing his own space into an exciting new-wave club influenced scene.
It’s been a long two years since the RED EP featuring tracks such as ‘Aurelia’ and ‘Pamela’, which have gone on to hit a million streams on Spotify alone, 2018’s stand-alone single ‘Medusa’ the only flick between then and last month’s ‘TAM’. With Flag set to drop in the near future, Tripp spoke to The Fader about his evolving sounds: “It’s almost like transition between my old scratchy funk sound and my new sound which is more like dark pop/RnB. It’s heavily inspired by Daft Punk.”
