With her evocative and visual music, TÃLÃ is in perfect synch with the cultural melting pot we call the 21st century
Despite having only released two tracks to the public eye, TÃLÃ’s contemporary sound is creating quite the buzz. Born in London and of Iranian descent, if one thing is apparent in TÃLÃ’s music it’s culture. Painting a picture of her ‘90s childhood spent growing up amidst a melting pot of contrasting cultural dynamics, her music is perfectly in tune with the 21st century individual, giving it a global appeal.
Influenced by her younger years spent listening to classical music, ‘90s hip-hop, R&B and computer game soundtracks, the sound she creates is an experimental fusion of infectious vocal hooks, off-beat percussive moments and ethereal synths. The contemporary sounds of bleeding-edge electronic producers coupled with the new wave of alternative pop artists have helped shape her sound into a heady and unique mix. We’re in electro-soul heaven.
Having announced her debut EP “The Dutchess” due for release this June, TÃLÃ has also released the video for left-field electro-pop lead track “Serbia”, which is said to be inspired by her fractured state of mind after viewing some disturbing torture porn. Directed by Katia Ganfield,the video was shot and edited over three busy days in Marrakech. Staying in £3-a-night hostels and walking the streets with a couple of cameras, the girls captured the realness of the vibrant city. Whilst the imagery makes an immersive visual attack on the senses, it is representative of the multi-lateral music TÃLÃ is pioneering. Other tracks on the EP include “On My Own In Hua Hin” and “The Dutchess”.
The EP is available for pre order on iTunes.
