Geko released his first solo project of the year, on the 30th of July. The single, named ‘Tantrum‘ is available to stream on all platforms.
The Manchester-based artist draws on an Afro-beat influence for the vibrant track. ‘Tantrum‘ ripples to a refreshing summery melody, which flows over an easy drum beat. Geko’s vocals act as an accompaniment to the instrumental. His coarse voice pulsates in and out of the foreground, which adds to the relaxing nature of the track.
The visuals echo the track’s calm. The clip depicts Geko riding around suburbia on an electric scooter. The sun is setting, and he is relaxing with friends. The result is a nostalgic accompaniment to the single, which reflects the social aspects of long summer evenings.
‘Tantrum’ is his first release this year. However, he has featured on multiple tracks, such as on Nafe Smallz’ ‘Plan Tonight‘. The last few years have been big for Geko. Smash-hits alongside group NSG, such as ‘Yo Darlin‘ and ‘6:30‘, have cemented his profile at the top of the British music scene.
The initial reviews for ‘Tantrum‘ are positive. Website GRM daily has praised the track’s ‘feel-good vibe‘, labelling the new material as ‘fresh‘. The early reviews will be of great relief to Geko, after his long hiatus.
‘Tantrum‘ is a very summery track. The afro-beat inspired instrumental is the perfect accompaniment for the upcoming heat-wave, due to its refreshing nature. The release capitalises on Geko’s reputation as one of the UK’s hottest artists, after a string of previous hits. Initial reviews suggest that ‘Tantrum’ will be Geko’s latest high-profile track, which proves that musical class is permanent after Geko’s time away from the spotlight.
