We just came across Thomas Headon, a rising star who today drops his new single ‘Loving You’, available on all platforms now via Platoon. The new song, which premiered on triple j’s Home and Hosed overnight also features the intro track ‘I’m Finally In Love’.
‘Loving You is like the birthing of something really new to me. As much as I’m super proud of the music I’ve made before this, I feel like what I enjoy and my taste has grown drastically. I’m inspired by a lot more things than I used to be and way more willing to get out of my comfort zone too, musically and just as a person. The song kinda stems from this girl just plainly not being interested in me, a lot of what I’m writing right now comes from there. Along with that this song is super visual to me, I can picture exactly what it looks like without the lyrics having to describe anything specific. It’s pretty, that’s what I really like about it.’
‘Loving You’ follows on from Thomas’ recent EP The Greatest Hits, which was released in March this year and featured the lead single 'Butterflies', the video to which features more than 100 fan-made short videos within it. check it out below.
Thomas has quickly earned support from triple j and Unearthed, and received placement across a range of Spotify playlists (New Music Friday, Lorem, Front Left & Our Generation), collecting over 10 million streams across all platforms to date.
Nineteen-year-old Thomas was born in London before his family moved to Melbourne when he was five. As a teenager, he started posting covers on YouTube which have helped him to build a dedicated, international fan base. Thomas is set to play his first London show to a sold-out, 800 capacity O2 Academy Islington audience later in the year.
We see huge things coming for Thomas and have just added him to our Hipland Sounds playlist. Check it out.
