Quick Thoughts: Thanks to a deep catalogue of impressive tracks and a demonstrated willingness to break the rules, thom.ko has developed a reputation as one of the most unique artists on the independent scene right now. The Washington State native’s stirring music incorporates bedroom pop and R&B influences, while his latest track, “90 MPH,” showcases the full range of talents that he has to offer.
thom.ko brings his signature toe-tapping melody and layered, intricate production, but his voice really stands out on this track. He has a rare ability to lay down vocals that seem to flirt with the track’s beat, gliding in and across and through. It’s difficult to give this track the credit it deserves through written word; you just have to listen to it. Stream on Spotify:
