Dublin-born musician Tomike has teamed up with Louth native Omo Aston on her latest single “Wildflower,” a soulful love ballad about loss. The pair assume the role of a couple in the midst of uncertainty singing back and forth to one another in traditional duet style. The track’s minimalist, hushed production allows the emotional lyrics to take centre stage as Tomike sings: “I don’t want to hold on to you / if you’re not holding on.”
Since her debut EP Stages of Love, Tomike has gained recognition as one of Ireland’s most talented up-and-coming vocalists and was featured in Hot Press’ Young and Emerging series. Having taken some time to focus on songwriting and production, “Wildflower” marks the start of an exciting period of new music from the alternative-soul singer.
