Tom Falle aka Rhumba Club combines a colourful synth-pop soundscape with wry lyrics. Drawing on the likes of Kate Bush, Talking Heads, The Blow Monkeys and The Smiths, Rhumba Club mixes up the topical with the retro.
Though he is joined by his 6-piece band on stage, Tom writes, records, produces all of Rhumba Club’s musical output and co-designs and co-directs all of the projects artwork and videos.
Featured on Spotify’s Alternative Pride playlist, alongside the likes of Christine and the Queens and Frank Ocean, the Rhumba Club was described by Notion as a cross between the Rhythm Method and WHAM!. One of his latest singles, “Normativity” has more than 115k streams on Spotify and was praised by The Line of Best Fit as an “empowering and emotive pop masterpiece”.
Help Musicians are supporting Rhumba Club through a 5-month publicity campaign, punctuated by the release of 3 singles, 3 videos and much live footage. I hope to capitalize on and grow the buzz I have already generated in 2019.
