Since she released her “Versus” single last year, Tomi Owo has established a renaissance of the soothing soul sound of the 90s she specializes in. She claims her place as one the exciting voices of our present music scene with her latest offering, “Night Rain”, a song that opens up a dream space to the throwback soul sound through the mix of ambient harmonies and charming vocals.
Oddio produces the dexterously looped melodies, blending guitar lines, laid back drum riffs, rattling samples and synth harmonies. But what gives “Night Rain” its enchanting quality is Tomi Owo’s vocal phrase double, multiplying her voice as if she’s singing in a hall of mirrors till she becomes a choir of one. Singing “Night Rain, Darkest Beauty I’ve Ever Seen/ You Came Just When I Needed You To Wash Away The Pain” over the soft beating of drums and bass guitar harmonies, her tribute to a great friend carries a seductive undertone lovers will appreciate.
