UPCOMER: Tom Branfoot

A local Leeds artist with an exquisite, dark new single ‘Knees Please’. Influenced by Nick Cave and James Blake, Branfoot has settled upon a sombre brand of pop, and one which is really somewhat different to what other upcoming bands on the Leeds scene have to offer. There’s a majestic, smooth quality to both the vocals and fragmentary instrumental of ‘Knees Please’, which is as unnerving as it is entrancing, and it’s no wonder that his single release show at Wharf Chambers a couple of weeks ago was so successful. Definitely music which stays with you even after the song has ended. Make sure to catch Tom Branfoot supporting PILL at Headrow House on May 30th.
