Tom Lee-Richards - The Wearing Kind

Tom Lee-Richards - The Wearing Kind
Debut single ‘The Wearing Kind’ from Melbourne-based New Zealand-born artist Tom Lee-Richards has, over the past 6 months, become more than just a song. Produced by award-winning producer Pip Norman aka Countbounce [TZU, Dan Sultan], ‘The Wearing Kind’ may well be the first song ever premiered in Melbourne via choreographed dance/street art installations.

Ruminating on how we separate ourselves from uncomfortable situations, the driving theme of the song, Tom took ‘The Wearing Kind’ into collaboration with Brazilian choreographer Gregory Lorenzutti, who, together with six gifted and generous VCA dance graduates, created 'The Wearing Kind Project': a music and dance production of ‘The Wearing Kind’ performed across various public city locations, Queens Bridge Square, St Kilda Fest, Southbank and FED Square Amphitheatre.

Footage journaling the collaboration, from concept to rehearsal and delivery, comes together in the upcoming film clip for ‘The Wearing Kind’, a stunning summary of the project, and a beautiful and unique glimpse into how gentle and inquisitive Melbourne can be when it comes to art and music.

About this track...

A simple, nostalgic, song about the falling out of friends – from being connected and close, to the estrangement of moving in different directions – ‘The Wearing Kind’, with Pip’s signature sample and beat driven approach, flourished into gentle, and moving, calypso-influenced territory, never detracting from Lee-Richards unique vocal tone.
