Industry veteran Tom Tikka is an experienced and talented musician. Inspired by a catch-up lunch with an old friend, his latest single ‘Hearts on Fire’ (out June 18th) has an indie-rock vibe, which paces to an insatiable four-on-the-floor groove. Reminiscing about his youth, Tikka allows his inner energy to shine through to prove that age is merely a concept. Competing with tracks produced by upcoming generations of burgeoning musicians, Tikka’s work has a substantive quality which only comes with decades of trial and error. The production is polished, featuring raw guitar tones and precision editing to lock in the tempo. ‘Hearts On Fire’ is a well-oiled machine from Tom Tikka & The Missing Hubcaps. Listeners are encouraged to get behind the wheel and take it for a spin.
