Emerging Irish R&B soul singer Tomike kicks off 2020 on an upbeat note as she shares her newest single titled “Need To Go.” On this one, she goes for a vintage-tinged sound evoking an 80-esque vibe laced with her unique contemporary style and heartwarming melodies to match. Tomike takes time to share her backstory in her own unique way as she reflects on her past working a 9 to 5 but still not fulfilled. It’s a story most creatives can relate to as the inner passion keeps calling and in Tomike’s case, she took the leap of faith and answered it. “Need To Go” is a quick follow up to her debut EP Stage of Love released in October last year.
Tomike’s rise has been unique in its trajectory. Whilst support has come through the traditional channels, with earlier single Told You chosen by key Irish Radio DJ and tastemaker Tara Stewart as her track of the week, Tomike’s music also came to prominence via a performance for Hillary Clinton when the former Vice President of the U.S visited Dublin. She was also invited to perform at the Prinatan Fashion Show at the end of the summer as part of Bahrain Fashion Week.
