Tennyson Drop The Soul-Soothing Loosie "With You"
Tennyson is a Canadian duo of adolescent siblings with an ambitious and soulful new cut in their latest single “With You.” It isn’t difficult to get swept up in the sweetness here, as the track commences with a warm gust of simple, yet stirring electric key flutters and a subtle break. Soon it blooms into a lavish arrangement of tender synths over a blistering shuffle that seamlessly transitions from house-flecked to trap-tastic and back again. It’s a full-bodied work-out; something for your feet, something for your dome and then something to pull on all the heartstrings.
There’s an easy recall to the moody 8-bit brilliance of James Blake, taking their commitment to sonic discovery to a level that’s catching the attention of heads like Ryan Hemsworth‘s, having been recently featured on his Secret Songs project. While this loosie may be our first taste of what these spry funkateers have been cooking north-of-the-border, they’ve been dropping gems like this for a minute now and certainly deserve a look on your post-work wind-down.
