TRACK REVIEW: 'J&W' - Tahvolé #BestNewMusic
RELEASE DATE: 15 DEC 2019
GENRE: ELECTRONICA / INDUSTRIAL
Tahvolé, a band from Jasin, Melaka, Malaysia, takes a whole new approach to their sound by letting go of their guitars and honing in their electronica. With J&W, the result has proven to be amazing. The song itself is meant to be a dialog between two people discussing a neocolonialist metaphor about people being born in cages like birds in captivity. All of this is caught in a whirlwind of dense, gritty production that manages to maintain a sweet kind of manic melody.
