Tom Fleming

Tom Fleming was the frontman for the British indie-rock band Wild Beasts from 2002 until the band’s split in 2017. Fleming just released his first solo album, under the name One True Pairing. He calls it “the angry northern Springsteen record that I’d always wanted to make. It’s neo-heartland rock.” These “heartlands” are the moors above Bradford or Cumbernauld, “places where people live their whole lives and do these things and succeed and fail.” Within this, there’s a continued exploration of masculinity that made his former band so unique.
