Video of the Moment #2002: Tourist

By on Monday, 1st February 2016 at 6:00 pm

London musician, songwriter and producer William Phillips, aka Tourist, announced last month that he would be releasing his debut album ‘U’ this year. Finally! He also announced a short string of live dates in the UK and Ireland; you can read them over here.

The purpose of today’s VOTM, however, is to introduce to the first taster from ‘U’. Single ‘To Have You Back’ is musically minimalist for the first 2/3rds of the song. Despite the relative bareness unusual for an electronic track, the song maintains an aura of cool until that point, after which soulfulness breaks through. The accompanying animated promo video beautifully goes with the music, as you’ll see below.
