TUNE Tom Lumley And The Brave Liaison - Crawling
Cambridgeshire native Tom Lumley is set to release his new single ‘Crawling’ on September 14 via self release.
Leaving all remnants of the usual singer-songwriter sound in his wake, Tom Lumley and his band are gaining a reputation for taking to the stage with monumental energy that’s felt from the front row to the back of the room.
Lumley’s debut ‘Dream City’ EP, released in 2017 charted at No.2 in the iTunes Rock Charts, with lead singles ‘Dream City’ and ‘Running From Our Lives’ gaining press support from reputable music journalists that included Clash Magazine.
Following on from the success of his debut EP, the 22 year old returns with infectious indie rock anthem ‘Crawling’. The track is about being trapped in a chemical relationship, to the extent where it’s almost an addiction. Even though you know it’s nothing but bad for you, you just keep going back.
Speaking about the track, Lumley said, “I feel it reflects a lot of modern day relationships. I feel my generation are very insecure in themselves and in their relationships due to social media and only sharing the “highlight reel”. Everyone shows off the good stuff, but no one ever sees the discord that is often happening behind the scenes in these relationships.”
Tom and his band have supported some of the UK’s hottest bands, including The Hunna, The Sherlocks, Coasts and Airways. Lumley also took to the stage last year to play the very last Secret Garden Party for BBC Introducing, as well as playing Dot To Dot, Splendour and Green Meadow festivals.
Having sold out The Portland Arms in Cambridge this year already, Tom looks to continue the pace and spread his sound across the country.
