‘Gimme What You Got‘ is the brand new single from Australian singer-songwriter Tom West, which is released tomorrow on AntiFragile Music as a taster for the upcoming album ‘I’m Livin’‘, which is out on June 18th. There’s something of an irony in the song title as Tom West explained: “‘Gimme What You Got’ came about during a time when I’d often take long walks up though the expensive suburbs on the edge of the hills that overlook the city. It struck me as weird, while walking past day after day, how empty and lifeless the massive, expensive mansions seemed in contrast to the busting and creative pubs, dive bars and humble share houses where I usually lived. So I guess this song is about being in one world and peering across a membrane into another that is close enough to reach out to, but so arcane.”
