TOMI on What Kind Of Love
“We all experience different versions of love, even in just one person. There is kind love, destructive love, boring love, obsessive love, drunk love, the list is endless. I spent this past Thanksgiving in Las Vegas, and it was a beautiful trip aside from a panic attack: ‘Every now and then I feel you coming up behind me.’ A lot had changed for me in a short period of time. I had been in a relationship for three years with someone who couldn’t quite figure out how to love me. It made me wonder if something was wrong with me. When we broke up, I felt a weight lift, and then as I fell in love with my current partner, I felt the weight pour back over me, even stronger this time. ‘Always crumble underneath your feet.’ The protagonist in ‘What Kind Of Love’ is love itself. I’ve always been obsessed with love stories and the inexplicable why: Why do we do the things we do? Why do we sacrifice ourselves for someone else? And why is love so hard to explain? My panic attack ended but the question lingered on: ‘What kind of love’ would make you feel so out of control?”
A deft guitarist and powerhouse on stage, TOMI will showcase new songs with her band throughout a New York City residency beginning on April 9th: three headlining shows at Baby’s All Right (4/9), Elsewhere Zone One (4/16), and Pianos (4/23). In May, she will head out on the road in support of Amy Shark for a two-week tour beginning on May 12th in Albany, NY.
