Published May 06, 2014At a Toronto gig last year, British Columbia songwriter T. Nile described herself as an "electro-folkie," and this hybrid sound is exhibited on her latest album. Tingle & Spark is due out on August 5.
The album was co-produced by Nile herself along with Matt Rogers of bluesy local act the Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer. According to a press release, the results "fuse traditional folk instrumentation and modern EDM technology via a unique brand of vibrant sass."
Listeners can apparently expect plenty of electronic instrumentation, and Nile said in a statement, "Working with synthesizers makes me feel a sense of unlimited musical possibility."
In anticipation of the forthcoming full-length, a condensed EP version of Tingle & Spark can be purchased on Bandcamp. The five-song set can also be streamed below; it mixes rustically twangy folk instrumentation with quirky synth textures.
T. Nile will perform at the Central on Toronto for Canadian Music Week on May 9.
