MF Tomlinson’s musical comparisons are as varied as Lou Reed and Tame Impala. His songs are the down-but-not-out chronicles of ordinary life. ‘Nature Boy’ sees cinematic soul synths grounded by a thunderous bassline, while MF Tomlinson’s vocals alternate between pensive, half-spoken rhetoric and suave hooks before soaring to climactic outbursts of passionate, anthemic energy.
The song is a reference to influential American songwriter Eden Ahbez’s ‘Nature Boy’, in which he said “The greatest thing you’ll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return.”
Tomlinson has already built up a strong live following in London ahead of his debut release and plays packed out shows across the city. He will play his next London headline show at The Lexington on May 22. He has also just been announced to support Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever at Village Underground on July 17.
