Tangiers are a young garage-rock band out of Philly. Their debut EP, End of the World, touts a fuzzy lo-fi recording style, but it’s an enjoyable element that adds to the talented allure of Tangiers’ soulful sound. The EP’s self-titled track is immediately engaging; Gabriel Simone’s swanky, semi-shrouded vocals emit an emotive yet loose croon over a bluesy raucous of murmuring guitars. It evokes comparisons to White Denim and Stephen Malkmus, particularly in how Tangiers are able to deliver unbridled passion with such clarity despite no bells and whistles within the production. This is quality, no-frills garage-rock from four talented young guys and a girl. Tangiers’ potential is scary big.
