TOMPAUL is rightly considered as Swiss most promising act in electronic pop music and has earned that spot through excellent releases and moving, intense performances outside and within Swiss borders. TOMPAUL perfectly masters the art of ambiances: a specific euphoric melancholy sneaks through every productions. Accustomed to dancefloors but not obedient to their dogmas, the producer/musician three-piece based in Baden works on the soundtrack of those late hours of the night when euphoric peak gently drifts into languorous feelings; between a few crumbs of night and pieces of morning.
The musical imprint of TOMPAUL draws inspiration from these very specific dawn atmospheres. There are different musical qualities combined: soft but precise rhythms, powerful bass lines, experimental synthesizers and organic instruments including this trombone, smartly used, that brings musical depth, and the opulent, expressive voice of Tom Fischer; a fondness for hooks and infectious riffs permeates every song. Comparison with bands like Bob Moses, Moderat or Monolink is nothing of an overstatement here.
