Once in a while, we come across a track that feels poetic and sounds poetic. And the “sounds” poetic is a rarity in the musical realm these days. With a whirlpool of specific genres of music being blasted on streaming services, it seems the era of experimentation is slowly beginning. And with it comes the element of poetic and evocative vocals in music too! Look no further, as today, we showcase a poetic and vibrant new single by the artist Tommy HotHands.
Renowned for seamlessly weaving his personal experiences into his art, Tommy HotHands returns with a captivating new single titled “Fall Forward.” This enigma features heavily subdued vocals, sublime tonality, and sounds that evoke an inspiring vibe. Drawing inspiration from a speech by the famous actor Denzel Washington at the University of Pennsylvania, Tommy HotHands has encapsulated his own style and poured forth his creativity. “Fall Forward” proves to be an ideal inspirational anthem to kick off ’24, as the surreal element of Tommy’s vocals completely captivates the listener. The transitions he has meticulously crafted keep us on our toes with each passing tone. While the overall tonality is distinct and slightly unconventional, creating dissonance towards the end, Tommy HotHands skillfully reintroduces a cohesive tone, concluding the track on a wonderful note.
Genre-mixing is no easy feat, yet Tommy masterfully achieves this with “Fall Forward.” It defies categorization, as it is not confined to a specific genre—it is music, it is poetic, and, therefore, it is phenomenal.
