‘Heartshaker’ – is inspired by Paul Simon and Vampire Weekend. With a strong rhythm and African influences it is the most upbeat track from Tom’s forthcoming album Collide.
On the track, Tom quotes:- ‘Heartshaker’ was written after travelling back from New York City.. I was in a relationship at the time and it felt like everything was moving very fast for me and I was struggling to take it all in! I got back from the trip & finally had a chance to write about how I was feeling and had time to process the feeling of being afraid of being left behind in a relationship.
Tom released four EP’s in 2017/2018; ‘Willow Tree’ Jan ’17, ‘My My My’ July ’17, ‘Waiting’ Dec ‘17 and ‘Live At Studio 3’ April ’18.
