TOBE BAER

New Release Tobe’s 5 song EP

PASSING THE TIME 5.1.20

Reviews:

Fatea Magazine, UK:

Opening track, All Gone, has a European techno-groove, reminiscent of A-Ha, with soaring multi-layered, choir-like vocals, whilst the guitar-lead Build A Wall gives ample scope for Baer’s rich and distinctive voice to shine on an appealing sultry, soul-like number, perfect summer listening.

Passing the Time, the title track, with its insistent electronic drum beat, and at times what sounds like a modern-day stylophone alongside other digital effects leads into In the Sun, another memorable soul-infused offering which builds to a fine climax via keyboards and brass, bringing to mind the tightness of the best of mid-70’s British R&B releases.

STABBED PANDA:

Brooklyn-based songwriter Tobe Baer steps up with a new collection of songs that blends the styles of Josh Rouse, Twenty One Pilots and James Bay into a short, eclectic E.P. As I write this, the times are strange.

It’s oddly prophetic that this record, presumably recorded some time before the Coronavirus, shares themes with the current crisis; I’m sure I don’t need to explain the irony of titles like All Gone, and In The Sun to you…

Singer-Songwriter Tobe Baer‘s music is fresh and groove-oriented, mixing a blend of old school Motown sound, with European techno and British production sensibility with his smooth, rich and distinct voice. His approach to his music is sensual and realistic; he sings about friends, girlfriends, aspirations, frustrations and everyday life in a big city, with the inner complexities we all feel, chiming in.
