Australian born London based singer/songwriter MF Tomlinson “seems to use music as a means to excavate within the soul” — Clash. Primarily a storyteller, MF Tomlinson negotiates styles as varied acid folk, alt country, chamber pop, new wave & soul to create a singular presence that defies categorisation. He achieves this genre fluidity with the help of a close-knit group of collaborators he lovingly calls the “the MFs, because they’re all very talented motherfuckers.”  

Strange Time is the debut album by MF Tomlinson.  Born out of the bizarre liminal space of constant uncertainty that we’ve been living in, his candid poetry and expansive sonic caress capturing a true-life portrait of a world in turmoil – the personal mental strains, global political reckonings, and, most of all, humanity’s ability to connect and survive through it all. Strange Time, showcases his lyrical and musical acumen in its purest form, comprising a set of pristinely-arranged folk songs. Centred on modern themes including lockdown, hopelessness, and social media addiction, Strange Time stands as a veritable and vital document of this indefinable era. - Robert Hakiman

The album is accompanied by the art of painter Chiara Baima Poma who contributed the cover art,  and video artist and designer Tomas Jef who created a series of videos around the songs.

'Strange Time' is his broadest, most in-depth document yet, one that represents a surge in creative energy.  - Clash Magazine


‘Slow-burning traction tied to light acoustic brushes, subtle keys and smouldering sax interludes... Tomlinson confronts the hum drum with ennui, rather than sugar-coated escapism’ - Line of Best Fit
