After releasing his critical acclaimed debut LP in last summer, TOMIKA is back for 2015 with something special.
This release includes two new songs, written at the end of 2014 after TOMIKA got back from a summer spent in North Africa. Inspired by the beauty of the people he met while traveling Tom directly started writing new music when back home, always having in mind the latest events of arab spring and the contrast dividing this continent. These two songs are a part of a concept, including several more releases, videos, remixes and information - as well a new live show starting in summer 2015.
EVERYTHING THAT RISES is the name of this idea, a plan spanning over several releases strongly linked to the intense experience of traveling through North Africa and the spirit of revolution and a new beginning.
I CAN'T GO BACK HOME AGAIN is telling the story of someone who has lost everything in life except his loved ones - but he finds himself unable to face them and bear the consequences of his actions. In the end he decides to better run away instead of showing a sense of responsibility.
SUMMER SONG continues directly from where the former song ended with the narrator starting to blame his loved ones for his suffering and his loss and sets about ending everything with a final confession..
