Thom Artway presents his new video for Can’t Wait

Already one of the most acclaimed young musicians on the Czech music scene, the super-talented Thom Artway third international release is taken from his upcoming sophomore album, ‘All I Know’, due for release this Spring. Throughout 2018 the young musician has toured all over Europe, which he concluded in the UK. Thom presents his new video for Can’t Wait, filmed in sunny Italy, just a few days after his concert at the renowned Dutch Eurosonic Festival. After winning two prestigious domestic Anděl Awards 2016, Artway is currently nominated again in The Best Solo Artist category.

In the Summer of 2018, Artway took off for several weeks to Italy to busk and shoot a music video for the track, Can’t Wait. He travelled from one Italian town to another and played on the streets. “The main location was the coast of Cinque Terre on the Italian Riviera, which is a group of five picturesque villages and it is really beautiful.” says Thom, adding: “This place has a great seaside atmosphere, people are friendly and it was fun to shoot here.” It was directed and filmed by the director, Ondřej Urbanec, who also did the post-production. The result is a video full of sun capturing the smell of Italian sea and countryside. Travelling around Italy, Thom came back to his musical beginnings busking around various European and world cities.

Can’t Wait is a cheerful and dynamic track floating on the edge of indie pop and indie rock. Produced by Thom’s main producer, Lukáš Chromek, the recording is off the new album, All I Know. The fictional story is about a young man who invites a girl to a concert of her favorite band and then faces the uncertainty of whether the girl actually comes or not. The optimistic melody of the song suggests that everything goes well in the end.

Making his debut at last year’s European showcase festivals like The Great Escape festival in UK, Waves Vienna in Austria, MaMA festival in Paris, BUSH festival in Budapest and others. Thom also performed in the busy summer festival season at Europe’s largest music and cultural festival Sziget 2018. December 2018 saw Thom play some of the UK’s finest independent venues - including his first London gig at the iconic Troubadour. Young artist opened this year with performance at legendary showcase festival in Netherlands, Eurosonic Noorderslag 2019.

Thom perfectly combines a modern sound with classic songwriting. His folk-pop songs are captivating thanks o his distinctive voice and clearly recognizable melodies. Hardly anybody knew him at home in the Czech Republic, that ́s until 2015, when his single I Have No Inspiration became an immediate hit staying, for over one year, near the top position of the Czech Hit Parade. Soon after came similarly successful songs Blind Man and Conformity, followed by Artway’s debut album Hedgehog released by Warner Music (2016). This record, several months later, won 2 prestigious domestic Angel Awards in the Male Singer and the Discovery of the Year categories.
