Another week closer to Summer means the tropical tunes are releasing thick and fast. Exams are looming and tensions may be rising along with the temperature, so take a step back from revision and relax with the best of this week's new music. Tom Walker - Blessings Tom Walker counts his blessings on his newest track, the lead single from his upcoming EP. ‘Blessings’ is a chilled out track with a rock edge, aided by the husk and roughness of his vocals. Artists like Max Milner instantly come to mind when listening to this song, but Tom holds his own through a strong voice and confident lyricism. Holy Oak - Isabelle Gentle folk song ‘Isabelle’ by Holy Oak is the kind of music you want to listen to as it rains. It’s sad and it’s delicate but beautiful, the vibrato backing vocal adds a special edge. Speaking on its origins, lead singer Neil Holyoak says “I wrote most of this song while I was driving a boat by myself on the ocean. I thought, “if I disappear now, no one will ever find me.” Instead of fear I felt immeasurably grateful for everyone who has meant so much to me.” TOFFE - Painting Pictures Sweden has a knack for producing great pop artists, and TOFFE is no exception. ‘Painting Pictures’ is an amalgamation of layers of synth, pop hooks, up-beat melodies, electronic and organic sounds. He writes and produces all his material himself, and takes a step away from Sweden’s traditional minimal style when it comes to music - this song is an explosion of summery beats.
