WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM TILLERMAN

“Hold Me, Haunt Me” is the newest release from West Yorkshire based Tillerman.

Tillerman says they take inspiration from The Everly Brothers and The Carpenters.
Describing their sound as “a place between classic rock and modern pop” and in fairness, I think they have it bang on.
They appear to be very family orientated, which lines up with their musical inspirations.

First impressions, very soft, a lovely backing tune.

The vocals kick in and are consistent with the backing track. The storytelling of the lyrics are brilliant.

The range of instruments is evident, it experiments with different ranges, goes both upbeat and down low, but it’s a healthy mix.
How do I feel it’s acoustic but not acoustic? either way it works.

I didn’t expect further vocals, it would work with or without.

The only criticism I have is that it’s a bit too long in my opinion. A minute less would have made it perfect, however, it is still a beautiful track.

The band have also released a music video alongside this, which is simple but well put together.
The black and white captures the emotion and importantly, lets the music do the talking.

The track is a relaxing, harmonic tune which helped me unwind, and panged together the meaningful lyrics makes it a brilliant song to add to Tillerman’s growing catalogue.
