ToMiK is the professional name of a duo of veteran German musicians who made their recording debut in 2019 “Geld oder Liebe” (money or love). That record introduced the multi-instrumentalist singing/songwriting team of Thomas Spiess and Mike Pape. The pair creates an intense modern rock vibe built on elements of alternative rock, metal and pop.
Spiess and Pape first met over 15 years ago when they performed together as band members in the popular German group Celltest Dummies. They went their separate ways in 2010 when Mike left to start his cover band Crazymay. Nearly a decade later they would reunite and form the award-winning ToMiK.
“Mit offenen Augen” (with open eyes) is the current single and title track from ToMiK’s brand new album, released worldwide via all major streaming services on June1 5, 2022. The track opens with an urgent melodic rap. An ethereal electric guitar picks minor-key chords as the beat drops on an organic rock groove. Analog synths paint the periphery before the chorus opens up for a powerful modern rock wall of sound. Throughout the song Thomas and Mike layer their sound with impeccably executed vocal harmonies.
