Norwegian producer and Nina Las Vegas protégé Hi Tom has released his contagious new single, featuring chilled vocals from LuvOcean.
Norwegian producer and Nina Las Vegas protégé HI TOM has recently released his seductive new single through NLV Records. Hi Tom first caught our eye last year with 'Tablet', and has delivered another exceedingly catchy tune with '365'. Featuring smooth vocals from LuvOcean over laid-back beats, '365' is a rollercoaster of sound that chronicles the evolution of a relationship from flirtation to infatuation.
“I wrote 365 with the singer LuvOcean in the frozen Norwegian spring of 2017," explains Hi Tom. "I had this instrumental called ‘Shiny’ sitting on my hard drive forever that I realised should be sent to Andreas (LuvOcean). I got back this amazing rough demo from him, I called him up and we quickly got in the studio to finish the song together.”
The "shiny" instrumental track is integral to the chilled atmosphere of the song, which opens with sparse vocals, guitar strumming, and not much else. Soon, however, '365' switches up a gear, with catchy beats and smooth synths. LuvOcean captures the tragic and comedic aspects on modern love, crooning "Sending good memes, yeah, you really come through... I'm a good caller/ I'm straightforward", which sounds like a pretty perfect relationship, to be honest.

Although the track is a new vibe for Hi Tom, it reinforces his reputation for clever and inventive production that doesn't take itself too seriously. With slick beats, smooth bars and a confident attitude, '365' is begging to be played loud at your next house party (and maybe take you home later.)
