Italy’s Tying Tiffany will release her new EP, “One” which is full of buzzing synths, minimalist vocals, and infectious beats on March 12th via ZerOKilled Music.
Opening track One Second is a straightforward and minimalist track with a catchy, repeating chorus and droning electronic beats. Creepy and screeching synths add the perfect layer that takes this track to an eerie level.
Take a listen / download One Second below via Soundcloud.
The tracks on the EP all start their titles with “One” and the second track is One Girl, with a pulsing beat and attention-grabbing chorus that are highly danceable. One Place features dense layers of bass-heavy synth, twisting and turning beneath Tying Tiffany’s vocals. The eerie One End closes the EP with a jolting, erratic rhythm and murmuring vocals that linger long after the track comes to an end.
Tying Tiffany will bring her live show to the US with performances at SXSW and in NYC this March – see dates below.
US Live Dates:
3/15: SXSW- Austin, TX, details TBA 3/17: Brooklyn, NY @ Glasslands
