Acquaint yourself with London based singer/songwriter Jerome Thomas and his eclectic and utterly intoxicating blend of R&B gems infused with soulful and electronic elements. Following up his brilliant Conversations EP which featured stand out cuts such as “Company” and “The Stone”, Thomas released “Didn’t Know”, the first of a double release with producer Warren Xclnce and featuring Joe Armon Jones. What makes Thomas such a great artist is the way in which he creates atmosphere and intimacy in his music – each of his tracks transport you away from the present moment and wraps you around in his warm and lush sounds.
As part of his COLORS show, Jerome Thomas serves up a spellbinding performance of “1989”, a collaboration with Warren Xclnce and b-side to “Didn’t Know”. Enveloped in a rich and captivating blanket of electronic-led production with percussive flourishes, the track blossoms and grows with each second as Thomas’ exquisite vocals pierce through the soundscape with an air of nonchalance and nostalgia. Everything from the sparkling instrumentation, the sensuous vocals and romantic narrative piece together beautifully to create something that’s truly out of this world.
