Well, MF Tomlinson has got me.
Nature Boy is his debut offering and it is a wonderfully idiosyncratic introduction to the man himself. Filled with fluttering flutes put to incredible use, spoken word interludes and tinkling piano keys that round out the whole recording, it feels as though it should be an iconic 60’s TV theme tune for the titular Nature Boy rather than one of my favourite releases in 2019.
2019 release it is though, no matter how much throwback nostalgia builds in you through the full 5 minute release. MF Tomlinson’s songs are described as the down-but-not-out chronicles of ordinary life and there are more than a few hints in the vein of the self-aware, sardonic style Jarvis Cocker has perfected over the years.
Having only the debut release out to listen to so far, if you want to catch more of MF Tomlinson and the vibes he is throwing around, you will need to support him live and you can catch his next show at Village Underground on July 17th here supporting Rolling Blackouts C.F.
Oh and check out the full video for Nature Boy, you can get a glimpse of what you are in for!
