Inner Tongue – Dig Deeper

Inner Tongue by HELMUT BERGER

Inner Tongue is a solo project that almost didn’t happen.

In 2013, its exponent was diagnosed with a vocal cord disorder so severe that only a handful of specialists throughout the entire world were capable of treating it. He worked day and night to raise the funds necessary to pay for the required operation, followed by a period of silence.

Luckily the procedure worked and the result is a vocal tone that fits somewhere in-between Tame Impala and SOHN.

The video for ‘Dig Deeper’ is like a party, and even includes footage of Inner Tongue dancing to David Bowie records.

Much like the project, there is a little confusion about where the track might take you as gentle jazz drums lead you into a false sense before it takes a moodier, more electronic turn towards its end.

‘Dig Deeper’ is taken from Inner Tongue’s forthcoming debut album, which will be released early next year.

Sounds like: Tame Impala, Phoenix, Chet Faker, The Weeknd, SOHN

Simon Zion – Ego Avenue

Simon Zion - Ego Avenue

Swedish artist, Simon Zion is determined to make it this year, despite exploring his faults in new single, ‘Ego Avenue’.

Just about enough retro guitar riffs and not too heavy on the auto tune, ‘Ego Avenue’ is a strong debut that immediately draws comparisons to Bon Iver and Francis and The Lights.

What do you get if you combine elements of shoegaze, jazz, low-fi, glitch and indie? ‘Forever For Now’ by the Austin-based Cloudchord of course.

Don’t be fooled into thinking this might sound too much like a mishmash of varying genres, as ‘Forever For Now’ is a highly catchy number, suitable for a Majestic Casual generation.

TEIP – Fingertips

TEIP - Fingertips

TEIP – Fingertips

We are sharing ‘Fingertips’; a charming new track from a four-piece, Anglo-Norwegian producer collective based in Oslo called TEIP.

Merging music in the genres of indie electronica, pop, chillwave and elements of alternative R&B, TEIP have been making music for a few years now.

‘Fingertips’ is more of a minimalistic offering than their previous releases, but we can’t get enough of the fragments of synths and eloquent female vocals that we’ve not seen from them before.

‘Fingertips’ is out now on DaWorks.

Sounds like: Flume, Chet Faker

Taka Perry – Slow (Feat. Jordi Davis)

Taka

Taka

Recent student, Taka Perry, has just shared his melodic and fantastical single, ‘Slow’.

Although written some time ago, the track has only just seen the light of day on the blogosphere, partly due to some friends from high school secretly creating a video for Taka, using an older demo version of the song, which obviously took Taka by surprise.

Of the video, Taka explains,

“The video is about a girl that doesn’t actually exist, but a figment of imagination inside the singer’s head. Whilst the video is predominantly comprised of imagery and visuals, the absence of other characters, sets an eerie undertone to the video, whilst bringing the attention back to the main character.”

He has enlisted the vocal talents of his friend, Jordi Davis (String Elephants).

For a limited time, ‘Slow’ is being offered as a free download on Taka’s Soundcloud page.

Sounds like: Chet Faker, Flume, Fort Minor, Bonobo, Solomon Grey
