Every once in a while you'll come across an artist where you can feel the music truly flowing from within them as if that's what they were put on this planet to do, and this is one of those rare occasions. Already well on his way to the top (no pun intended) is 18-year-old Manchester-born, Kansas-based singer-songwriter-producer Tommy Newport with his hazy, funk-flavoured alt-indie cut On Top.
"On Top is a funky alt track that I’ve been excited to share for a while. I have always loved tracks that make you want to get up as soon as they start and dance and I wanted to have one of my own for people to resonate with."
His desires were executed with aplomb as it certainly does. Filled with a swaggering effervescence, Tommy embraces a charming nostalgia inspired by 60’s psych-rock, 70s funk and the classic ballads of yesteryear that we all know and love.
On Top follows up recent single Mr. Angel, which we incidentally loved and with only a handful of singles to his name, consider appetites whet for his upcoming debut album Just To Be Ironic out November 16th.
