Like many of us, Tommy Cullen spent last year locked away in his house. Perhaps more unusually, that house is essentially a small house-shaped box and sits on top of a river in the middle of a city. Here, Tommy seized the opportunity to hone his songwriting and production skills, creating songs about scary sharks, imaginary breakups, existential adventures and really nice trains.
Former frontman with Dublin alternative band The False and the Fair, Tommy has been writing and producing music for a number of years. 2021 continues his series of home-recorded solo singles, with each release showcasing different aspects of his unique writing style. The accompanying videos, crafted by Tommy, feature an eclectic mix of animation, archive footage and extremely lo-fi VFX that bring his song's stories to vivid, unpredictable life.
Tommy has been steadily growing an online following throughout this process, reaching fans across the world and racking up a few streams along the way. He has also kept up a rigorous schedule, posting #newmusicdaily on his Instagram in addition to his official releases.
