Phum Viphurit is a singer-songwriter based in Bangkok, Thailand. He writes charmingly and
irresistibly inviting music—his interpretation of alternative indie-pop soars with buoyant melodies
and comfortably familiar themes of finding your own voice and exploring your place in the world.
Phum gained international recognition in 2018 from his dance floor-filler single, “Lover Boy,”
following his sleeper hit, “Long Gone,” in 2017, with an accompanying music video directed by
Phum himself. The latter single was off his first studio album, Manchild, released under Thai
independent record label, Rats Records. The nine-track LP navigates coming-of-age
discoveries of self-identity, first love, desire, passion, and building his dreams from his native of
Thailand and New Zealand, where he was raised.
His meteoric rise to international recognition paved for three highly successful overseas tours
headline shows and premier billing at music festivals—in Asia, Europe, and the United States,
as well as sold-out local shows in Thailand. He’s set out to return to Europe in Summer 2019
following a second sold-out Asia tour in Spring 2019, which includes Japan’s Summer Sonic
Festival and his sold-out headline show at Esplanade in Singapore, which was attended by
Phum’s music has reached an international audience, gaining a record-breaking 16 million
streams on Spotify across 65 countries last year. On his latest single, “Hello, Anxiety,” Phum
approaches a somber topic with an interior perspective—and adds texture with lofty synths and
funk elements to his signature brand of soul and indie-pop. It was released in March this year,
with already 5 million views on YouTube.
