TomboFry is a chiptune artist from Glasgow, Scotland.
From his early beginnings in 2009, still barely understanding what an “gameboy” is, TomboFry experimented with creating music digitally for the first time. Soon after, he discovered chiptune, an 8-bit retro style similar to that of the NES and GameBoy, with the release of Growing Darkness in 2013. Over the years, he has experimented with dark and distorted soundscapes, synthwave, and in some cases, comedic medieval (examples of all of these can be found in Song-a-Week 2016)! He is largely influenced by 00’s pop, progressive rock, and most recently k-pop. Who knows what’s next for TomboFry?
Since 2022, TomboFry created “Fry Records”, an independent music label for his and his friends’ music projects. Writing this in the third person has been quite strange. Hello!
