Today’s song is “Time” by David Thompson.
This is song is the opening track of Philadelphia based artist’s newest EP the wall out now.
Thompson creates fun music that is a surreal good time. His emotive and dark observational lyrics make for a great dichotomy to his intriguing upbeat electropop magnetism.
This first track will keep you listening until the end of the album. Fans of John Maus, CHVRCHES, Alex Cameron, Porches, Robyn, Father John Misty, Oppenheimer Analysis, and Human League are sure to dig Thompson.
More About David Thompson
A tiny fixture in the Philly indie scene with Big Tusk from 2012 to 2014, David took a hiatus from recording music to organize with Philly Socialists, where he helped start the Philly Tenants Union and Philly Workers for Dignity. In 2017 he released “Into the Night (2017 Version)” and promoted it with a brief tour with a super-group of Philadelphia musicians. Aside from this, the only place you could catch David performing music for years was the historic St. Clement’s Church on any given Sunday, where as a professional chorister he would sing ancient hymns and intricate choral Masses to a “small but spirited” group of parishioners. But once COVID-19 hit and David was confined to his bedroom, he began feverishly finishing music while not at his labor bureaucrat day job.
