Tandem Felix

Released: 27th April 2015
Label: Trout Records

Wow! Wow! Wow! Ok, I think I better start by finding some adjectives to describe this new EP by Tandem Felix other than expressing my pure excitement and that genuine head over heels in love moment when you hear a new band for the first time and you just want to tell the entire world.

Tandem Felix are a band from Dublin who up until now I knew nothing about and, after listening to their four track EP ‘Comma’, this is a band that I now can’t imagine my life without. Listening to this EP there is no doubt about who has influenced the music that Tandem Felix write, sounds of Wilco, REM, Neil Young and Kurt Vile can all be heard. If you are a fan of any of these artists then this is an EP you need in your life.

‘Nothing I Do Will Ever Be Good Enough’ opens the EP and from the moment you press play there will be no going back. Listening to the way the song has been put together it is clear that this is a band who love and care about the music they write. The word perfect does not seem powerful enough for ‘Waiting In The Wings’ as this is one of those magical songs that just makes life so much better. ‘Moon Tingles’ will send you into meltdown if you aren’t already, the melodies, percussion and vocals are stunning. ‘Union Street Blues’ continues to show just how much the band care about the songs they create, every sound that we hear has been put there for a reason. Just when you think things could not get any better the EP closes with ‘Mandarin’, a heartbreaking yet beautiful song with haunting piano led melodies and vocals that will shatter even the toughest of hearts.

Don’t waste any more time, listen to Tandem Felix now and I am sure you will fall in love just like I did.
