Tom Tikka, a prolific singer and multi-instrumentalist from Finland, uses his warmth and enthusiasm to write songs that address significant concerns to foster thought-provoking songs that build hopeful and good changes with his track record of writing hit songs. Speaking of which, Tom’s recent big track, “Venetian Rubber Boots,” is a powerful song that explores the subject of climate change and its effects on people’s lives. Released on February 28th as the eighth single from Tom’s 10-track album “Better Man,” “Venetian Rubber Boots” was sparked by an alarming photo of people traversing through flooding in Venice, Italy. And this was Tom Tikka’s reaction to the need for a song that would draw attention to the problem. Therefore, follow along as I delve deeper into the song.
“Venetian Rubber Boots” is a rock song consisting of explosive choruses, stinging guitars, and sincere vocals encased in delicate percussion, creating a dreamy ambiance. The song opens with beautiful synthesizers and drum rhythms to pave the way for the greatest section of the instrumentation to take over. This is a fantastic match for Tom Tikka’s reflective words, which pull us in with the song’s eerie tune and charm-filled sparkles. He performs in a lovely way, and his vocals stand out in particular. It’s gentle and fragile, yet it also exudes a spirit of will and resiliency that heightens the song’s impact, which is both moving and unforgettable, hammered forward by the chorus.
“Venetian Rubber Boots” is essentially a call to action, with Tom pleading with listeners (that’s us) to accept accountability for our deeds and do our bit to lessen the consequences of climate change. Tom Tikka and The Missing Hubcaps draw attention to the situation of the residents of Venice to emphasize the very real human cost of environmental deterioration and the urgent need for a worldwide solution before time runs out. And that’s what gives the music its power to affect me. It simplifies complicated environmental challenges into an emotionally impactful song that is both relevant and compelling.
Overall, “Venetian Rubber Boots” is a significant and relevant song that delivers a top-notch musical experience while addressing one of the most critical concerns of our day. It is professionally produced, has a polished sound, and showcases the musicianship and attention to detail of Tom Tikka and The Missing Hubcaps. The expertise of both the singer and the instrumentalists perfectly complements the song. And with potent lyrics and captivating melodies, “Venetian Rubber Boots” has also been able to continue Tom Tikka’s trend of excellent music. Therefore, because of its striking theme, I heartily suggest this song to everyone, especially those who are concerned about the future of our world, since we’ve got just one.
