The future belongs to the youth and Tennyson is proof. Although they hit the scene four years ago, Canadian brother and sister duo–Luke and Tess–are currently only 20 and 18, respectively. Since their self-titled debut, Tennyson has taken the scene by storm. People like Flying Lotus have praised them and mainstream media outlets like NPR and the British Guardian have featured their raw, jazzy music.
Three days ago the prolific group dropped “Your Eyes (feat. Njomza)” on OWSLA. In true Tennyson fashion, Luke’s creative and feral production with Tess’ steady drumming for a track infused with one-of-a-kind energy. But what sets this track apart is Njomza’s visceral singing, softly sinking her teeth just enough to draw blood from the music.
It’s the perfect song to sit back and contemplate the meaning of it all while the rain drizzles down on a grey day like the one we’re having in Santa Cruz, Ca. Some might even call it euphoric.
Be sure to check out their North American tour happening now!!!! For you Bay Area folks, they play San Francisco on 10/27/16
