New Music: Introducing - Tom Tripp
“Sweet sweet baby jams,” says one comment on Tom Tripp’s Soundcloud. They’re not wrong. Aurelia might be a demo, but it sounds fully formed to my ears – except for the fact that its from some sort of radio broadcast (there’s some DJ type chat at the end). Think Jai Paul (remember him?) meets Ben Khan (remember him?) with a soulful shine. Shall we put him down for the BBC Sound of 2018 list then? (He'd have had a good chance for the 2017 one, ticking a number of the required boxes including the South London one). A debut single proper is coming soon via Nao’s Little Tokyo Recordings label.
