PREMIERE: Tobias Folkin’ Brilliant In New Single “When The Sun Comes Up Again”

tobias-when-the-sun-comes-up-article

Sunshine Coast singer-songwriter Tobias has unleashed another cracking folk-rock track from his just-released sophomore album ‘Alive’, When The Sun Comes Up Again.

The album, the follow-up to his debut album ‘Toby Robinson’, is full of memories from his childhood such as fishing on the river, sitting by the fire with his brothers, his mother’s warm smile, and the challenges of his youth including his mother’s cancer diagnosis, and…well just growing up!

When The Sun Comes Up Again is classic folk-rock tune full of warm acoustic guitar strums, chiming electric guitar, smooth vocals delivering poetic lyrics, and topped off with some sexy saxophone melodies. If you’re a fan of The War On Drugs, Ben Lee, or Bruce Springsteen, Tobias’ latest single is sure to be your new favourite track.

Talking to us about his new album ‘Alive’ in a track-by-track rundown, Tobias said When The Sun Comes Up Again is a driving song written specifically for the great Australian road trip.

“While recording this album I was aware that one way or another I was going to be on the road, touring it around Australia, so I was inspired by that,” says Tobias.

“It’s a song about getting out of the city, getting on the road, and experiencing this beautiful country of ours, meeting new people and waking up in amazing places…something I still do and will keep doing!  I also wanted the saxophone to feature because it reminded me of all the great surf songs I used to listen to in the 90’s.”

Tobias says his new album is all about delving into deeper emotions and experiences, and coming out the other side as a stronger person.

“[The word] ‘Alive’ sums it up…alive as a songwriter, alive to these experiences. Feeling the grief and then finally feeling that things are going to work out. It can take courage to get up there and share so much of yourself in your stories and your songs, but it’s what I should be doing.”

Tobias will be pottering around the Sunshine Coast hinterland throughout December with shows either side of his appearances at Woodford Fold Festival. Check out his new single When The Sun Comes Up Again and tour dates below!
