Bands crop up in Austin all the time. One of the hardest things for a live music fan do is predict which groups will stick around for a while and which won’t, so it’s really nice when we get a sure thing. And ladies and gentlemen, TØMA is a sure thing. They’re doing everything right: catchy hooks, solid production, and an overall tight sound; you’d be surprised to find that they’ve only been together for about a year. TØMA’s first album, produced by White Denim’s James Petralli, came out last month, and we can’t get enough of it. Check out some of the tracks below, recorded live in Studio 1A.
