Tom Misch has unveiled a lush new track titled ‘Water Baby’ featuring long-term collaborator and friend Loyle Carner. Taken from his upcoming debut album Geography, released April 6th, it demonstrates Misch’s impressive understanding of structure and groove. His production skills become more sophisticated with each new release and this latest single, complemented by the lyricism of Loyle suggests the album will be one of alternative sophistication.

Both Tom and Loyle hail from South London, and are just two of a creative hub of like-minded musicians working together and sharing their talents across their friends’ work. There are numerous musical communities south of the river, but this pool of creativity, that also features the likes of Jordan Rakei, Cosmo Pyke, Carmody, Poppy Ajudha, and Tom’s sister Laura Misch, is noteworthy due to the richness and sheer variety of its talent.

More of those talents could well feature on Geography, such is Tom’s penchant for joining the dots between genres and establishing routes through them without boundary. Disco, soul, jazz, and hip-hop are touchstones of a musician who isn’t easily defined, and why Geography promises to be such an evocative, exciting listen.

’Water Baby’ is a fascinating moment from an album that promises to be littered with them. Listen below and pre-order the album here.
