Tom Misch today shares his sophomore album, What Kinda Music, a collaboration with friend, drummer, and producer, Yussef Dayes.
The highly anticipated album, released on Blue Note Records, is quite a shift in sound for Misch. His earlier works have been lighter; his trademark soft vocals and playful guitar riffs the perfect score for a summery day. What Kinda Music, on the other hand, is more experimental – and it might throw some existing fans.
What started out as one of the UK’s best-kept secrets, Oh Wonder are now six years down the line, with over two billion streams, more than a million record sales and a top 10 album under their belt. Not bad for two (extremely talented) people who began by uploading one song a month for a year to Soundcloud.
With a smash hit song riding high at #1 on the U.K. charts for seven weeks, almost 800m global streams on his music and two sold-out tours in Europe and North America – all before the release of an album – you would think Lewis Capaldi would be on cloud nine. Yet despite all this success, the cheeky Scottish singer/songwriter remains incredibly humble, saying that he’s “enjoying it while it lasts.”

Filled with beautiful, euphoric and pulsating melodies, the album is so fresh yet so nostalgically Bombay Bicycle Club.
