Tandem Felix revealed their new double a-side single ‘Ryan Hoguet’/’How Strange, The Weather’ just over a week ago.
The new single follows on from their Popcorn EP, released back in April. Such was the quality of the EP it could have proved a rather hard act to follow. No such problem for the Dublin based quartet who continue to explore their way through the stunningly elegant sound they happened upon with Popcorn. The pick of the pair (for me) has to be ‘Ryan Hoguet’. Slowly evolving over a thoroughly laid back four and a half minutes, it is a serenely beautiful number, who’s woozy vibe owes much to the majestic combination of sweeping, soft instrumentation and hushed, whispering vocals. Tandem Felix have signed off 2013 in style. Let’s hope we hear plenty more from them in the new year.
You can road test both ‘Ryan Hoguet’ & ‘How Strange, The Weather’ below or purchase it from here. There’s a launch party happening this Wednesday (Dec 11th) in the Button Factory – all the details are here.
