As the air gets cooler and the nights get darker you may be hoping for something delicious and unexpected to keep the ears warm. And “Black Sea”, the new release from French trio Tiger Lion is just the smooth, oddly seductive tonic to satisfy those urges.
Drifting into dreampop territory through the lush vocals of Clémentine Blue, her French and English lyrics are surrounded with abstract, detuned surprises which make the song particularly special.
The pulsing distorted buzz of a synth, the hints of wild raga-influenced strings, a melting pot of ethnic, exotic bliss that simmers with all the elements and passion you’d expect from a tale based on geographical separation and longing.
The song is taken from the forthcoming album, exploring the relationship between bodies and landscapes.
“Black Sea” is out now.
