Madeline Tasquin – “Future Telephone”


A “lament on modern day (mis)communication,” Madeline Tasquin’s gripping track “Future Telephone” meshes her lush vocals with an eclectic stylistic grasp that reminds of St. Vincent, traversing across suave blues-tinged twists (like at 01:25), singer/songwriter pop, and brass-tinged jazz-laden sensuality (02:40 to 03:10) to craft a track that makes the most of every second. Complex harmonies and interesting structural variation makes for a riveting effort that showcases a songwriter fond of interesting tonal shifts. You can stream the other five tracks on Madeline’s release via Spotify here.
