Thomas Cole exudes confidence with his new single, ‘Cringe,’ which features his best pal EJ Garlands. The two are unstoppable when they’re together, and they exude zeal!
‘Cringe’ is also a “stand up and hear us” anthem that speaks for everyone in the pride community. The duo are self-assured, and their music reflects that. The pair’s vocals are equally infectious, and the constant change in structure is thrilling! ‘Cringe’ is also strong and joyful, with a dance-pop soundscape that is difficult to resist.
Thomas Cole said about the release: “When I listen to ‘Cringe,’ it makes me feel powerful. I feel a sense of power because one of my biggest fears used to be others’ disapproval — so I found myself living for other people, rather than for myself.”
“When someone very close to me told me my music made them cringe, something that normally would have debilitated me, I took my newfound confidence and wrote a song that would lift me up, and lift up others who may also deal with crippling insecurities.”
“In each of my musical endeavours, I’ve tried to weave in, lyrically or thematically, a life lesson that I’ve learned these past 31 years. With ‘Cringe,’ the lesson I’m trying to convey is that by being unapologetically true to who you are, I’ve found, is the best way to find solace and true happiness. Disregard all the haters because, in the end, it’s their loss!”
