Typh Barrow Finds Herself Tormented By 'The Whispers'
Belgian singer-songwriter Typh Barrow's voice certainly makes an impression. Rasp-flecked, richly resonant and deeply soulful, it comes imbued with a particularly arresting aural magnetism: grand, majestic and regal, her distinctive vocal tone is delivered with a boldly sonorous maturity. No surprises, then, that the 'No Diggity' cover that first caught our attention several years ago, along with the rest of her YouTube channel, have collectively gathered nearly four-and-a-half million views. Raised on the likes of Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, Eric Clapton, The Eagles and Marvin Gaye, she furthered her musical education at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels while honing her pop, jazz and soul inspired sound, and has gone on in recent years to make a name for herself across the Belgian radio, TV and music festival scene.
Here showcasing the soul-stirring reverberation of her commanding vocal resonance over the portentous opening piano of her new single, 'The Whispers', Barrow grapples with ghostly murmurs in her sub-conscious - 'I hear them saying how crazy I am / All of these voices, I'm losing my mind' - as the song gathers to the rousing gallop of the chorus.
