Tenderly is a track that features heartfelt lyrics about how we all need love, just as we all need air and water. It also features the Weissenborn, an instrument I was not familiar with. This style of guitar is used on the lap and creates a completely different sound.
The track is taken from Floating In The Darkness, the first vocalised Thomas Oliver album released last April.
Tenderly was filmed against the backdrop of South Australia’s Flinders Ranges; sweeping shots of the Australian Outback under the scorching summer sun with a lone Oliver and his trusty guitar. The clip perfectly complements the smooth vocal harmonies and layered instrumentation.
