Tesha – “Funeral”

“Funeral” is a captivating, nocturnal-sounding track from Brooklyn-based Tesha. Clanging, moody guitar work is gradually accompanied by ghostly synths, paving the way for haunting vocals to emerge around the one-minute mark. I’m reminded of The Knife’s ability to infuse creeping vocals with enjoyably unsettling soundscapes. Synths assume a more glistening quality in the final one-third, alongside the swelling of backing vocal harmony involvement. “Funeral” is a gripping, atmospheric success. “Wonder,” – streaming below – is also a catching effort, touting an exotic melodic form and a more acoustical tilt.

“Funeral” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2019’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Lush Indie Electronic.
