WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM TOM COLLINS – BARRICADES

Tom Collins’ new song “Barricades” is a beautiful blend of indie and acoustic vibes. The track grabs our attention right from the beginning with a hypnotic guitar intro. Immediately after, Tom Collins’ vocals strike a chord while conveying an unexpectedly profound feeling of sadness and vulnerability. The raw emotion in his voice is palpable and will make you want to shed a tear, even without knowing what the song is about just yet. I’m rarely moved by a song but Tom Collins did just that from the first notes.

As we delve deeper into the music, the lyrics further amplify the emotional weight of the track. Indeed, with this new song, Tom Collins offers a poignant commentary on the uncertainties and challenges of modern society. Lines like “When did the world get so unsteady” and “Both of my shoulders are too heavy” capture the existential angst and disillusionment that many people (if not everyone) feel in today’s world. The singer gives a voice to the new generation and encourages us to confront the face of societal pressure and conformity with the powerful chorus “We’ll break the barricades“.

With “Barricades”, he offers a rallying cry – urging us to find our voice and break free from the constraints that hold us back. More than the lyrics, the highlight of the song is truly Tom Collins’ singing prowess. Despite the melancholic tone of “Barricades”, it is like he cast a spell on listeners and it’s impossible to listen to the song just once.

If you’re looking for a singer-songwriter with raw lyrics and emotional vocals, Tom Collins will make you keep coming back for more.
