Brooklyn-based duo Tiger Silko show a compelling sound throughout “Lluna,” commanding a cinematic-minded meshing of folk and pop with its eerie guitar stylings and mesmerizing vocal hypnotics. “Greed, pride, envy, and loneliness, I watch it burn through the emptiness,” the vocals remark. “Nothing can hurt me the way that she did.” Thereafter, dreamy vocal pulse effects intertwine beautifully with the calming vocal lead, percussive thumps, and swaying guitars.
The captivating “Lluna” represents the first single from Tiger Silko’s upcoming debut album. The duo of Jonathon Wright and Lisa Jaeggi elaborate further:
“The baroque pop release is a waltz through lavish ballrooms of tyranny and depravity, tinged with longing and the slightest admission of regret. The song sets the stage for a saga swirling with mysticism, desire and melancholia, a hero’s journey through humanity and fantasy, space and time. Lluna is a scorpio, a transgression, a crowned demon, a cat with nine tails, Baphomet’s bacchanalia and a submission to the intoxicating darkness.”
