Sylver Tongue – Hook You Up
Sylver Tongue, believe it or not, is Charlotte Hatherley – guitarist and backup vocalist from 90s Irish rock band Ash. But don’t expect the punk-pop guitars of Girl from Mars (spotify) or the Brit-pop melodies of Shining Light (spotify) when you press play – this is more of a lo-fi electronic serenade:
It’s sweet yet sultry at the same time, daydreams of floating in the skies, a shy beckoning call – until the drop. This is one of my favourite tracks from this year so far and it immediately brought Friends to my mind, similarly effortless cool – it’d be a perfect one for them to cover or collaborate on.
Live date at The Lexington this week and I’m hoping more to be announced soon – would love to hear more music.
