Thomston Returns to New Zealand for two special shows in Auckland and Wellington

11 March 2021 - 0 Comments

He’s New Zealand’s best kept secret, and Thomston is returning for two very special shows off the back of the release of the first single, JPA989, from his highly anticipated sophomore album!

Performing next month – Thursday April 8 at The Tuning Fork, Auckland and Friday April 9 at Meow in Wellington. Tickets are on sale now from livenation.co.nz!

"New Zealand art-R&B aesthete," (The Fader) Thomston has honed an intriguing sound of his own with inspiration from Frank Ocean and James Blake and a razor-sharp pen reminiscent of Taylor Swift and Lorde.

Since he emerged with his debut album Topograph, Thomston has amassed over 150 million streams worldwide, toured in support of Broods and Billie Eilish, and received critical acclaim from The Fader, Nylon, Pigeons and Planes and Complex among others.

His anthemic single The Heights soared to #1 on the Hot NZ pop chart leading to an MTV EMA nomination for best New Zealand artist. The lyrics "So if I fall, it'll be 'cause I jumped. And if I jump it'll be because I’m reaching the heights," are symbolic of his steady rise to recognition.

By 2019, he had been named one to watch from the likes of Triple J in Australia to KCRW stateside as his follow-up single Acid Rain - both self-written and produced - became his most well-received release to date.

His highly anticipated sophomore album is set for 2021 - a visual world taking us from New Zealand to Los Angeles, sonically exploring the brightness of new romance to the dark twisted fate of a love affair.

"The reality hasn’t quite sunk in yet, that I get to see people, hug people, meet people, let alone get up on stage and play some material from this new record for the first time. Kicking off the album campaign back here in New Zealand is already special enough but, after a year of isolation and quiet, the prospect of a packed room full of expression, love, and connection feels almost too much for my little heart. I can hardly wait."
