Glasgow-based female artist TALLISKER comes actually from France and her indietronica pop music is a smart mix of rave culture and classical influences! Listen to “Salanfe“, the first single off her upcoming sophomore “Heliotrop EP“.
TALLISKER is a musician (she plays cello), but also a technician as she uses loops, distortion, reverb, and other effects in order to create harmonies between her instrument of choice and her crystal clear voice. The artist reminds us of Mhairi, Purity Ring, and of course Björk.
Her stage name comes from “A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland”, a travel narrative of Samuel Johnson that was released in 1775:
The track “Salanfe”, first single off her upcoming “Heliotrop EP”, due for November 11 via YUMYUM, is a cold symphony made of strings, vocal chops, and sounds similar to the interferences that are sometimes caused by some smartphones. The track is surprising in regards with the current French musical scene: it’s modern, fresh, and captivating.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/280765163″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
