It’s hard to believe that Tommy Newport only started releasing music at 18. Although he’s been playing the guitar his whole life, his professional music career began in 2018. He excels at finding the balance between super funky synth-heavy beats and his guitar virtuosity. As a result, he creates tracks that feel fresh while also displaying a considerable amount of musicianship. After coming off of a busy 2020 and being named “Best New Artist” by Pidgeons and Planes, Tommy has shown no point of stopping. Having already released an EP, he just released a new track with EARTHGANG.
Stargazer is just such a sweet track. Being a nu-funk-influenced hip-hop track, it’s really hard to go wrong. Additionally, it features probably the best bassline we’ve heard this year, paired with some absolute bars from EARTHGANG. Resulting in us wondering if a song could be any more perfect? While Tommy Newport is a very talented guitar player, he also brings his insane voice. After the first verse from Doctor Dot, Tommy launches into this beautiful falsetto mixed in with the chorus. And no matter how many times we’ve heard it, it still gives us goosebumps.
With how strong Tommy Newport has started this year, I think it’s fair to say that he has big plans for the future. Maybe an album for 2021? In conclusion, This track was the first time he collaborated with another big name, so we are all just so pumped to see what else he has in store for us.
