Striking Ballad from Tokoloshe
I woke up today wanting something reflective, something slowly moving that would have me looking back on the weekend, which is how I landed on Irish songwriter Tokoloshe. This track comes off The Ever Changing Same Old LP, which he’s recently shared. It sort of opens with this soft strum beneath his heavy vocal notes. Slowly, textural notes are built into the song, which really allows the emotional pull of the song to ebb and flow, ultimately leaves you with that thoughtfulness I alluded to earlier; that’s also matched by the fragility in the vocals that slowly unfold along the way too. Settle into your week with this number.
