The English deep-soul creator Tom Walker released the single Heartland on the 13th.
Heartland opens with a bowed string which burrows its way deep in to the arterial system prior to expanding to a reggae-dipped funk tempo with a hip-hop vocal spiralling across the room, all harnessed in to a cohesive organic entity in which the listener becomes invested.
Whilst the combinations on the surface appear incompatible, akin to tipping out the constituent parts of a combustion engine in a pile on the floor, Tom Walker is able to deliver a track that is as silky smooth as a V12 engine pootling around town.
Heartland is available on Amazon.*
