Tom Fleming, former Wild Beasts‘ member has announced his new new project, One True Pairing. Today, he has shared the first song “One True Pairing” from forthcoming LP new guise (Domino Records). Amidst discordant guitar and aggressive synth, Fleming’s voice calls out: “And I’m not some kind of white knight, I was burning all my hope and all my life.” the Clarence Clarity-directed video for “One True Pairing”

From Tom Flemming:

“One True Pairing is a name taken from internet fan fiction, where you write the perfect relationship you always wished existed. The idea of Prince Charming and Helpless Princess living happily after is no fun at all.”

This idea and the expanding themes – male identity, class, taste – are the cornerstones of One True Pairing. “I wanted to write about the real world,” asserts Fleming. “This is a song about hope, about getting beaten down and getting up again, more wide-eyed and full of wonder than you ever were before. It’s about doing wrong and then seeing things for what they really are. It’s a love song, or as close as I’ll ever want to get to one. The name of the whole project is something of a savage joke, but this time I mean it 100% sincerely. Wear the scars proudly, wave ‘em in the faces of people who don’t, will never understand what they mean. One True Pairing, 2019, hope you enjoy it.”
