Described as “a sign of the times”, the new EP from Tommy Newport, is filled with classic funky bass lines, slow restrained production and quirky melodies. Titled ‘Liquid’, it’s a release that takes a route of unexpected turns, serving up the signature Newport sound, mixing funky-indie vibes with a world of pop-rock.
Born in Manchester, England, Tommy Newport relocated to the United States with his family at six years old where he bounced around from Dallas to Seattle before settling down in Wichita, Kansas. After picking up the guitar as a teenager to ease the boredom that comes with the idyllic, but monotonous life in the Midwest, Newport submerged himself into music and hasn’t looked back since.
His new EP, ‘Liquid’ is a fittingly fluid and vibey release produced by Newport and frequent collaborator, 4th Pyramid. The project bends genres highlighting the singer’s incredible vocal dexterity and following a simple notion as Newport shares, “Liquid in my eyes is my take on the sign of the times.” With classic funky bass lines, slow restrained production and quirky melodies, Liquid takes a route of unexpected turns, serving up the signature Newport sound, mixing funky-indie vibes with a world of pop-rock.
Featuring some stellar singles like ‘American Spam’, ‘Martians’, and ‘Bubblegum’, the new EP covers a lot of ground, unleashing vibrant pop sounds, invigorating indie anthemics, and stellar cyclical melodies, ‘Liquid’ is a moving piece of undeniable quality.
To date, Newport has amassed millions of streams for his music, as well as recognition from the likes of Zane Lowe, Complex, PAPER Mag, Pigeons & Planes and many more, all touting him as the next big thing. He has been featured in a variety of television shows, including HBO’s hit TV show Ballers, Netflix’s original series ‘What/If’, TBS’ popular TV show ‘Search Party’, Amy Schumer’s documentary ‘Expecting Amy’, as well as the hit TV show ‘The Sinner’. He has also scored a recent ad campaign for Apple’s iPad. There is evidently no end to Tommy Newport’s talent, with Liquid marking just one of his many exciting chapters.
