WATCH: MF Tomlinson - 'Nature Boy'

MF Tomlinson's Nature Boy remains one of my favourite tracks to be released so far this year. I shared it here a few weeks ago and I'm delighted that it now has an equally glorious video to match. (For one: check out the outfits. Lovely.) Directed by Eddie van Whelan, the video draws on classic films like Vertigo and Don't Look Now to create a sinister feel, while the track is musically inspired by 1970s action greats. The song is written in reference to eden ahbez's Nature Boy in which he said that "the greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love and be loved in return." 

With the movie inspirations in tow, the video features some of Tomlinson's musical collaborators, notably flautist Ami Koda, and shows us some of his songwriting locations... including the Pacific Social Club, Cable St Studios, and his rooftop. It really is rather lovely. Did I say that already?   
 

With a recent sold out show at London's The Lexington to his name, MF Tomlinson is soon to support Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever at Village Underground on July 17th. Tickets on sale today here.
