There’s something about being 6ft tall that puts you a head above the rest. If you can also make good music, then you’re pretty much set up for life. It’s at this point that we bring you THØSS, the sonically-inclined enigma from the UK that we are already very, very afraid of. Over the course of the past few months, the 25-year-old (the final clue we have regarding this mystery man) uploaded a few tracks privately to his SoundCloud for his friends to hear, with the view count eventually barging through the floodgates. “Swing” is the first being unleashed to a wider audience, and it’s as bold as debuts come. With only thin percussive layers, a tight acoustic guitar, a touch of synth and a pinch of harmony in support, THØSS’ vocals are spotlighted – resplendent in every way. His soulful inflections prove intoxicating, carrying the melody with a control and ardour usually reserved for seasoned musos.
