Song of the Day: Same Again – Char

Following her critically acclaimed debut single ‘Control’, which was met with rave reviews from the likes of BBC Introducing, Lefuturewave, DiscoverNU, and Mercato Metropolitano Radio, Berkshire singer and songwriter CHAR‘s first offering of 2020 ‘Same Again’ is a mesmerising offering with warm R&B and lush pop sensibilities, led by CHAR’s smooth vocal and effortlessly soulful delivery, underpinned by a slow-building jazz-soul fusion minimalist musical backdrop, which allows CHAR to steal the show from start to finish.

The latest release sees CHAR looking introspectively at the cyclic repetitive behavior. She explains: “We often find ourselves trapped in, not considering the effects of doing the same thing again and again, and expecting a different result – whether it’s going back to that one person time and time again, or repeating the same night out over and over again. The track is a bit of hard nudge for me, but there’s also a self-soothing aspect to the track, where I’m saying ‘let’s not beat ourselves up too much’, because life is already tricky enough to navigate through as it is”.

The video portrays a more likeable, attractive Henny Knightz, cleansed of his superficial imperfections but thwarted by the anarchic ticks of a frustrated emotional hooligan.

Toms One Drops Summer-Ready Track, ‘All I Need Is You’

Following his entry on NEW LEASE MUSIC with single, ‘Hey’ (Ft. Lauren May), which is currently the blog’s Song of the Month, DJ TOM ONE is back with his latest single, ‘All I Need Is You’, featuring Georgie Wells.

Boasting perky electro dance synths, perfect for the upcoming summer months, ‘All Need Is You’ is a song about appreciating the one you love – not necessarily a significant other – but close friends and/or family who were there through the toughest times. The three-and-a-half minute piece is further uplifted by Birmingham singer Georgie Wells’ perkily soul/pop vocals.

Inspired by artists such as Calvin Harris, Jess Glyne, Clean Bandit and Klingande, ‘All I Need Is You’ was originally conceived in 2014 whilst Tom was studying music at the University of Manchester. After the song went through many transformations, in summer 2018, Georgie Wells was enlisted to provide the vocals and the track was finally completed in late last year.

So here’s your chance to check out Tom One’s single, ‘All I Need Is You’, now available on your favourite download/streaming sites.
