Tanoki Featuring Farah Elle
Released on June 11th, this second single from the forthcoming album File New was co-written by Farrah Elle. Tanoki is known for his visual arts and music production skills, when working with Farah, the duo have put their heads together and composed something out there. Farah Elle lends her piano and voice to the mix, while Tanoki programmed and scored all the lines in between.
With funky samples and strings, the music opens. Snippets of The Twilight Zone call out before Farah Elle begins to sing. The cinema-scape vocals resonate through shuffling beats and heady bass. A distorted blues adapts to the funk timing and synthesiser tones swerve and swing on the graceful tempo. Musical interludes cast magical spaces in between the experimental and emotion-led delivery of words. A progressive and fascinating composition, Let Go builds and flows until it spills over into a wave of moving sound.

It begins on keyboards that dapple like sunlight through the leaves. A melodious vocal springs out from the shadows and groovy beats shimmy along parallel lines.

Chris Conroy's previous singles Sink or Swim and Dive have both propelled the artist into radio and social media fame, thanks to his great songwriting talent. Taken from the forthcoming EP with the same name, Wolves is a song about two lovers who have a different future. Where the alpha male wants to have adventures and take risks, the alpha female wants to maintain a healthy home territory. The song explores the feelings behind this separation of paths.
It opens with a swaying oceanic melody that's followed by a smooth acoustic guitar. Close and personal vocals resonate across and through the composition as subtle harmonies vibe on the minor key. Personal and melancholy feelings swirl in a slow fog as the melody builds with underlying chords. Moving on is hard, the mental image we cling to has become a fantasy that prevents us from seeing the truth.
