Sipping Not Tripping
Introducing Tunolase Margaret Cole from Drogheda. Fresh off the presses with her second single, the Afroswing idola T. Cole hits Alternative Fruit. Inspired by artists such as Prince, Amber Marks, and Jackson 5, her sound takes traditional moves and utilises modern ideas. Built entirely from a few jammed chords courtesy of her Brother Josh in the studio, a rippling synthesiser, and a vocal line captured with a phone, this track redraws the boundaries on what makes a good sound. Building a song as a group with producer Solo was a different technique to how T. Cole has previously written material. About missing someone, and the fact we have to get on regardless, this seemed the perfect way to explain the sensation.
With rattling drums and shakers, the music opens. Tonal steel drums with a delicate muffle begin to describe an effervescent feeling. A soulful voice pours through, amazing to think it was done with a phone, the melodic and dynamic voice clearly dances over the bars with an RnB style buoyancy. A repeating riff builds under harmonies and vocal progression that sees a whole forest of words thrown in expert lines as quick as a flash. A really catchy and upbeat track, Sipping Not Tripping lifts you up.
