South London indie singer & noted beatmaker Tom Misch unveils the ice cold new visuals for his latest infectiously smooth and jazzy single “Water Baby” featuring frequent collaborator and fellow South Londoner Loyle Carner. “Water Baby” follows up Misch’s late 2017 single “Movie” and will appear on the artist’s forthcoming debut album Geography out April 6.

Misch floats on the ice sheets of a frozen lake in a disturbing yet serene way and we are treated to blissful choreography from Shaadow Sefiroth dancing upon the lake.
