TOM SPEIGHT + KIOL
London-based artist Tom Speight releases ‘Waiting’, the second single from his new EP of the same name.
On the track, Tom says, “I’ve wanted to record a song like ‘Waiting’ for a long time, I feel like it captures elements of some of my favourite indie bands like The Shins, The War On Drugs and Grizzly Bear. It was written around the time i decided i wanted to leave Liverpool. I had lived there for about 6 years and definitely needed to move and start fresh. It was an exciting period of finding my feet in London that resulted in a lot of new songs. My main goal when it came to recording this song was capturing the energy it has when we play it live. I recorded it with Chris Bond in Devon in the same session we did ‘My My My,’ it was the first time I’ve used synths and had a full band in from the top. I feel like it’s definitely a progression in my sound and step in the right direction”.
Tom releases another quartet of EPs in 2017/2018, the first of which Willow Tree was released in January and the 2nd EP My My My in July. The 3rd EP Waiting is released in December and the final EP in the quartet will be released early 2018.
2017 has also seen Tom signed to Kobalt (recording) and Cooking Vinyl (publishing). Radio 2 playlist support continues and Tom has reached an amazing 10m streams on Spotify.
