Forward-thinking artist thomTide is back with his new single “oceanBreeze”, marking the latest episode in his seasonal drama. Every fortnight, the singer releases songs from his upcoming project to coincide with the seasons. oceanBreeze from his spring collection embodies all the positivity that the new season can bring.
The guitar chords support the melody and are followed by thomTide’s voice and drum beats, which give the music a very melancholic air.
“At first when I was writing this song I was just simping over the perfect girl”, thomTide shares, “It felt very one-dimensional; it didn’t feel realistic. I wanted to talk about approaching her… it’s meant to be confusing, but still exciting. I wanted doubt and hope to exist right next to each other, because that’s a compelling (maybe not always pleasant) feeling I’ve felt so many times before”.
The young artist has already been highlighted by many tastemakers such as Clash, The Line of Best Fit and EARMILK among others, and has also been included in some coveted playlists such as Apple Music’s New Music Daily and Spotify’s Fresh Finds.
This is undoubtedly due to his captivating tracks that capture the zeitgeist, due to the fact that multiple genres and sounds come together in his music, but also due to the fluidity of his sounds and the way he conveys an atmosphere, a state of mind, through his melodies.
He represents a new wave in the world of indie music. You can listen to “oceanBreeze” just below.
