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
