TonAsh is back with yet another dance-hall-hip-hop smash, fusing high energy, multi-layered beats, with a heavy bass-line and a quickly confident, easy-going subject matter and performance.
Birthday is an easy anthem for contemporary hip hop fans. TonAsh drives with a simple lust for life – catchy hooks, laid-back concepts, professionalism and style. This release is far from the exception and offers yet another track that further cements TonAsh’s sound and approach as an artist.
Birthday is a song that connects a little more strongly with each few moments that pass by, and indeed with each new revisit. While that initial quirk of the concept and the hook, combined with the colourful and fun accompanying video, are the first things to grab you, the song actually goes on to lead with a notably energizing beat – a heavy vibe, great rhythm, and something more of an alternative, late-night aura than anything purely designed for the pop world. That carefree swagger drives things along in an appealing way, reminding you there’s a musical connection at the heart of TonAsh’s work and his reasons for making summertime bangers such as this. Well worth a few spins as the hotter season swings into view.
