Following on from the enormous support for his incredible debut collection ‘EP 1’, which earned radio play on BBC Radio1 (Jack Saunders ‘Next Wave’), BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing (Fire Five), Radio X (John Kennedy’s X-posure playlist & session), KCRW, Triple J, and Amazing Radio, media support from The Times ‘Best New Tracks’, CLASH, Dork, Louder Than War, Songwriting Magazine, Hot Press, NARC, RTE, The Sunderland Echo, FredPerry SubCulture, and This Feeling amongst others, as well as countless adds to official playlists from Spotify, Deezer, and Apple Music, Sunderland’s Tom A. Smith is back once again to unveil his explosive new single ‘Could I Live With Being Fake’.

Picking up straight where he left off, ‘Could I Live With Being Fake’ continues his pursuit of bright and anthemic indie-rock textures. With his raw and distinctive voice riding a bed of uplifting guitar hooks and thunderous drums, this new effort looks to cement him as the one of the most compelling names rising on the scene right now.

Speaking about his latest release, he said, “I wrote this at a time when I’d turned down doing some things that guaranteed some high profile publicity and maybe even success, but it wasn’t what I wanted to do or feel passionate about. It didn’t mean I didn’t doubt if I was doing the right thing, but deep down I knew I was right and should believe in myself.”

Having already played a ton of gigs since the release of his debut single ‘Wolves’ last year, including supporting Courteeners, Martha Hill, Vistas, Blondes, The Pale White, Eliza and The Bear and most recently Gang of Youths on their recent UK & Ireland tour, Tom A. Smith has also announced a string of live dates for the forthcoming year, including shows at Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape, Barn on the Farm and Neighbourhood Weekender, as well as support slots for Miles Kane and Sunset Sons. Tom has also been longlisted for the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition which could see him perform at this years prestigous Glastonbury Festival.
