UK producer and composer Tourist unveils the beautiful accompanying video for “Hush” – the instrumental track from his acclaimed Wash EP [listen here] which came out last week.
Directed by Dillon Moore, it focuses on William Phillips aka Tourist playing piano at the houses of various LA musical friends, including Benny Blanco, Rostam from Vampire Weekend and RL Grime. The audio is a mixture of William playing the track on the piano and the final version of the track on the EP.
Last month Tourist revealed a collection of “We Stayed Up All Night” remixes, including versions from Tom Demac and Matthew Dear [listen here], offering new takes on his EP’s lead single. Tourist recently wrapped a string of US tour dates supporting Bonobo and Bob Moses, his first shows in the states since his stellar Coachella performance earlier this year.
Tourist makes yearning, bittersweet dance tracks. He’s considered an “artist’s artist”, with fans such as Flume and Porter Robinson supporting his releases. After the self-titled debut EP (2012), Tonight EP (2013), and Patterns EP(2014) featuring guest appearances by Lianne La Havas and Will Heard, as well as high-profile remixes for Chvrches,Haim, Christine and the Queens under his belt, Tourist went on to win the GRAMMY for co-writing the Sam Smith hit “Stay With Me”, and he released his debut album U (2016) to critical acclaim and support from outlets like Vice, Billboard and Rolling Stone Australia.
The single, “Run” landed with #1 spots on BBC Radio 1 dance charts and Hype Machine. This was soon followed by a string of sold out shows as a live favorite across the United States, Europe and Australia, including major festival appearances at Glastonbury, Coachella (twice) and Bestival.
