Brisbane/Meanjin born, London based songwriter MF Tomlinson “seems to use music as a means to excavate within the soul” — Clash. Primarily a storyteller, MF Tomlinson negotiates acid folk, alt country, chamber pop to create a singular presence that defies categorisation. He achieves this with the a group of collaborators he lovingly calls the “the MFs, because they’re all very talented motherfuckers.”
"Rivals Bill Callahan's 'Sometimes I Wish I Were An Eagle... celebrates community spirit with Leonards Cohen's elegance... blissful climaxes, taking in bucolic psychedelia, jazzy post-rock, and celestial synths with the freedom of The Necks."
"Tomlinson's second album only comprises four tracks, but contains multitudes, offering variations on chamber rock with a solemn grandeur that simmers with tension..."
★★★★ The Times
"It reveals Tomlinson as a rare thing today - a talented, depressive song-writer with a sense of humor"
★★★★ The Line Of Best Fit
"Tomlinson is many things; a wordsmith, a commanding vocal presence, and a conductor of light and dark. But at his core, he is a deeply talented songwriter that can conjure emotion via the slightest movement, utilizing momentum, rage, desolation, and hope to construct a truly heroic story of self-discovery."
"An album you feel more in your gut than anywhere else, MF Tomlinson has created an opus on emotion”
