”Losing someone is hard and the memories that seep through unknowingly is what makes it harder to let go
Independent Irish based artist, Tolu Makay releases her first single 2019 "Ocean" on the 16th of August. Losing someone is hard and the memories that seep through unknowingly is what makes it harder to let go. Oceans represents the loop effect of one's memories. She narrates events with spoken-word describing memory to be like a scratched vinyl that is in a constant loop. The song is sad but masked with an upbeat tempo and a nostalgic feeling to it. Inspired by the likes of Erykah Badu, Nina Simone, Sabrina Claudio, Jhene Aiko, etc. This Soul Alt singer strives to create songs that will forever inspire generations to come. While staying true to the theme of experience, empowerment and self love her two singles, Goodbye and Reflection has become an anthem for many young women finding their feet.
