Tropics By Emily Buck

TROPICS is the solo-project of London based Chris Ward and Blame is the perfect track for the wintery nights that have started creeping upon us. The brand new single is the opener for his upcoming album Rapture and tells the heart-breaking tale of a break-up. The album sees Ward drawing on his musical upbringing; he started playing a multitude of instruments at an early age. Ward has stated he’s been musically influenced by PETER GABRIEL, MAX ROACH and ARTHUR RUSSELL – we certainly also hear a bit of Mr. BLAKE within the fragile vocals, ambient-pop hooks and synth backdrop of Blame.

We’ve featured the artist on NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION a few times already, namely with a couple of intensely atmospheric tracks and accompanying videos. His debut longplayer  Rapture will be released on 16th of February via Innovative Leisure. Enjoy the tender first single from it already today.
