“Are you going brain dead? ‘Cause you’re already halfway there.”
Hailing from New Zealand, Thomston and his alternative-pop tunes have garnered him quite a loyal fanbase, making a global impact on the music scene. He was given a year to do music or go university and we are glad he made the right choice of pursuing a music career. Following a Europe tour in August earlier this year, he has now returned with an all new single, “brain-dead.”
He describes the song as moving over into adulthood as he introduces us to his new sound. His songs always had a slightly darker and more morbid approach but I have to say, I am enjoying this change in style. Starting off with chill verses, it progresses into a more upbeat, subtle dubstep-infused electronic sound. His voice is well shown off in this track as he plunges for the low notes with heaping conviction.
