Toby Charles is a singer-songwriter from Worcester and this is his new single “Rather Be (With You)”. Honestly, it’s always a pleasure hearing from Toby. Over the last couple of years he has released a steady stream of music that never fails to fill our tummies with sunshine, and this new single – following from his Spaces in Between EP – is bound to do the same.
Speaking about “Rather Be (With You)” Toby says of the new single: “I wanted to write an upbeat song, something that felt summer-y that you could have a little dance to. It’s a love song really, about how no matter where you are or what you’re doing it’s never quite as good if the other person isn’t there.” Tobester you have certainly done that, my dude.
A tempo immediately fills the room with a summery set of drums and a guitar melody goes down smoother than a cold beer to transport you back to a time of sunshine and beer gardens. As expected, Toby’s vocals are full of soul as they project lyricism full of love, topping off the song with the occasional hook and harmony. The result is a gloriously sunny listen, and one that, once again, has been a pleasure. Up the Tobes!
