Over the last few months VinylOctopus has been growing and growing, so we thought it was about time we got some fresh new writers. Introducing Declan Parker, our music savvy guru from Leeds, who lets face it, probably needs no introduction!
It’s hard enough to make a name for yourself on the alternative circuit, especially when trying to do it in the dance genre. Most artists are drowned out when their music hits the clubs, being overshadowed by autotuned lyrics, and almost unrecognisable mashups of already-established hits, but that is certainly not the case for Tiggi Hawke. The London-based singer/songwriter, currently signed to TileYard Music, is smashing into playlists across the country with her new track ‘Neon Dancer’.
Hawke’s mixture of beautiful lyrics, hypnotic voice, and pulsing beats provide a refreshing taste to a usually dry genre. And that’s only scratching the surface of her abilities. The original edits of her tracks could easily be hits in their own rights, but once you combine that with the remixes of her songs, you realise just how much of an impact her music can have on a whole range of charts.
Listening to her music, I couldn’t find a favourite track which is all the more to give her a listen yourself. Whether you’re a fan of pure and meaningful lyrics and a catchy beat, or if you’re just a rave-obsessed lover of remixes, she has a track for everyone.
Check her out on Spotify, or Youtube, and make sure to follow her on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @Tiggihawke
