New Music of The Day – XVIII: Fallen Empire – Inner Tongue

UnknownFallen Empire’, is the first single to be released from the forthcoming EP, and is the perfect introduction to Inner Tongue. Forlorn vocals and melancholic instrumentation come together to create a beguiling, idiosyncratic and ethereal listen.

“During his enforced silence because of a complicated vocal cord surgery he wrote lyrics, harmonies and melodies which eight months later he could finally sing and record. Thoughtful beats, dreamy plucked guitars, warm vocals, this all sounds like a great mix of SOHN, James Blake and Chet Faker.” 

On the new EP, Inner Tongue says, “The songs are essentially about starting over. Moving somewhere else. Putting a few things into empty spaces and feeling them becoming yours. Revealing your reincarnation to whom you’ve left behind. Feeling embarrassed, but passionate about what’s to come.”, going on to say, “[the songs] are all little places in my head.”
