AUCKLAND, NZ (March 9, 2020) – He’s New Zealand’s best kept secret, and THOMSTON is returning for two very special shows off the back of the release of the first single, “JPA989,” from his highly anticipated sophomore album!

Performing this month – Thursday April 8 at The Tuning Fork, Auckland and Friday April 9 at Meow in Wellington. Tickets are on sale now!
New Zealand art-R&B aesthete, (The Fader) Thomston has honed an intriguing sound of his own with inspiration from Frank Ocean and James Blake and a razor-sharp pen reminiscent of Taylor Swift and Lorde.

Since he emerged with his debut album Topograph, Thomston has amassed over 150 million streams worldwide, toured in support of Broods and Billie Eilish, and received critical acclaim from The Fader, Nylon, Pigeons and Planes and Complex among others.

His anthemic single ‘The Heights’ soared to #1 on the Hot NZ pop chart leading to an MTV EMA nomination for best New Zealand artist. The lyrics So if I fall, it'll be 'cause I jumped. And if I jump it'll be because I’m reaching the heights, are symbolic of his steady rise to recognition.
By 2019, he had been named one to watch from the likes of triple j in Australia to KCRW stateside as his follow-up single 'Acid Rain' - both self-written and produced - became his most well-received release to date.

His highly anticipated sophomore album is set for 2021 - a visual world taking us from New Zealand to Los Angeles, sonically exploring the brightness of new romance to the dark twisted fate of a love affair.
