Undeniably one of the most exciting artists to emerge from the UK recently, Sam Tompkins unveils emotive visuals for his new single ‘My Brother’.
“‘My Brother’ is really special to me. I love it so much. The origin of it is actually a sad but lovely story. When I was about 18, we lost our Nana and at the funeral we had to read the eulogy. I got about 6 words in before being in floods of tears, my brother read the rest and was so strong. Flash forward to last year when my Papa (Grandpa) passed away and I decided to do the eulogy. Sadly because of covid my brother couldn’t make it as he was working away in Canada. This time I got the whole way through it and I remember getting the text from my brother who watched it through a live stream that I smashed it and I felt so proud because the only way I was able to do it was knowing I was the exact age my brother had stepped up and been brave 5 years prior.”
With praise from the likes of MTV, Clash, BBC and Notion, as well as airplay from BBC Radio 1 and features on Spotify editorial playlists, 2022 could well be the year that Britain unveils it’s next big superstar to the world.
Taken from the new EP ‘who do you pray to’, which is out now.
