Tamino – Cigar (Unday Records)
Tamino - Cigar

Release Date: Out Now

Egyptian/Belgian artist Tamino has one of the single most enchanting voices around so I urge you to turn the lights down low, turn your phone off and let this one wash over you. ‘Cigar’ opens with some haunting tones before a slow acoustic strum is eclipsed by Tamino’s vocal, something akin to a slow rolling boulder made of dark chocolate covered in velvet. At times, it feels as though we’re running on low battery, such is the drawn out drawl of Tamino but as the song builds to a Hozier-esque crescendo, you can’t help but be swept up in the luxurious grandeur and effortless elegance of this single. I was utterly side swiped by this song and the vocal of Tamino and I hope you will be to – if you like it then check out his Nick Cave-esque cover of ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ on Youtube too, it’s a treat.
