Tomike's brand new single ‘Whisper’(OUT NOW)
Following the huge success of her debut EP ‘Stages of Love’, which racked in 100k streams spotify alone in less than a month - Tomike is back with a futuristic, seductive and soulful track.
‘Whisper’ is a groovy yet emotionally driven song, with the lyrics taking listeners on a journey. Tomike uses her smooth vocals to narrate the difficulties she feels as an introvert, in a world where society can mock females who are vocal about their sexual desires. As a result, she fantasises about having the freedom to vocalise her feelings freely with no judgement or consequences. The rhythmic production, funky bass line and Tomike’s rich vocals compliment each other nicely on this track.
The singer had this to say about the song:
“The creative process behind whisper was very organic, the inspiration to write this song came from a place of frustration, combined with a desire to feel free. I wanted to write a song that translated my emotions in the most honest and freeing way, I also felt like a lot of women would be able to relate to that. I recorded Whisper myself in my bedroom during lockdown.”
Produced by the talented Solow the Astronot, Davlo, PCG and Rvstless.
