Today, electronic duo Tigers Are Bad For Horses released their new EP aptly named TABFH. D.C. natives Mary Ellen Funke and Lyell Evans Roeder are the voice and production behind the project. Their sound is crisp, soulful and echoes an air of Sylvan Esso or Banks.
Out of the three tracks on the EP, the standout is “Messenger,” a lamentation rippled with downtempo beats. The second song, “Overflown,” is mellower and diluted, with an unexpected break in the vocals during the second half. To end things on a more upbeat note, “Flash Flood” carries a melody that builds up over the course of the song and finishes with a sense of respite at the end. Funke’s vocals throughout the EP are sultry and rich, creating a harmonious balance to the synthy backdrop.
