Their fusion of rave and indie is one of the things that makes them unique, with a new album always eagerly awaited. Fans need not wait much longer
After wowing them at Cannes (video above) and featuring in UK fashion bible iD, 25-year-old Theophilus London can have a fair claim to be on the right side of style and indeed the Theophilus package applies not only to his rap but meticulous attention to image.Â Sporting a Wu Tang Clan logo on his t-shirt during his recent Tour de Roses, London also nods to their gift for iconography in his promotion of the ubiquitous rose, fast-becoming the Theophilus London logo. Â But itâ€™s not only about the merchandising â€“ his online mixtapes, released free, quickly singled him out as a fresh talent. Prepared to go where other rappers fear, he is not afraid to list Kraftwork and the Smiths as some of his more leftfield influences. Â His album ‘Timez are Weird These Days’ is the sound of the summer, perfectly suited for long evenings of impossible love. After a whirlwind world tour, August 4 sees his Central Park concert in his hometown of New York.
