TIGGY HAWKE, “Electric Sun”
I wrote about “For What It’s Worth”, Tiggy Hawke’s most recent single and collaboration with producers Sondr, back in the Spring, and it has since become her most-streamed song, clocking in at just under 4 million on Spotify alone. The North Londoner’s unique style, sometimes reminiscent of an Ellie Goulding, takes a bit of time to nestle inside your head. And with “Electric Sun” she moves away from a more lyrical electronic bent to one that’s heavy – and very welcome so – on the big bass beats. Yes, “Electric Sun” is a punchy dance floor filler that one might associate with a Nora En Pure set in Ibiza, and will sound great in a large audience setting once those events resume. With “Electric Sun”, Tiggy Hawke shows both her diversity in the dance music genre and her ability to take a risk that is already paying off in spades in the form of hundreds of thousands of streams within weeks of its release.
