Tongues are one of the bands I’ve featured on my ongoing New Bands 2015 series (right here) and they caught my ear because the superb Colours In The Dark and Anymore were two of the finest examples of synthpop I’d heard in a long time.
Anymore also featured on the second Almost Scottish Fiction e.p. which you can still grab at no cost at all here. It’s no surprise that Tongues have continued to attract praise from all sorts of places and their recent set at T In the Park on the BBC Introducing stage unsurprisingly went down a storm.
The excellent news I have for you is, Tongues have released a new track, and that track, ‘Religion’, is available for you to listen to below. ‘Religion’ is a cracking track; a combination of chants, vocoded vocals, laid back beats and instantly catchy synth melodies that you can easily see a packed venue bouncing along to very happily indeed. This track is a prime example of why Tongues are fast becoming talked about in more than just blogging circles. Religion is a prime slice of clever, hook laden electronic music that you are bound to fall in love with.
