The first thing Tom Grennan wrote was Old Songs, which has a cheeky, Jamie T-esque charm to its syncopated storytelling. But it was Something In The Water, the title track from his debut EP, that really showcased Grennan’s gritty, soulful vocals. After a scat-like, staccato verse, it gradually builds up to something rapturous: “I can see the light now, as I'm stepping out the door / Well there's something in the water, calling my name.” The song, he says, “was like coming out of the dark. I felt sorry for myself for a minute, but I’ve got to just pick myself up.”

With Something In The Water’s success, the ball was well and truly rolling. Next came a Chase & Status collaboration, All Goes Wrong, which might never have seen the light of day were it not for Grennan’s sheer force of will. After a fruitful writing session, the electronic duo were unsure whether or not to release the resulting song. Grennan, with the unabashed self-belief only a 21-year-old could have, told them, “Boys, this is a banger.” He was right, and a spot on the BBC’s Sound of 2017 longlist shortly followed. Now, there’s no stopping him.
