Tell – “Tea Leaf”


Brooklyn-based band Tell impress with “Tea Leaf,” the third single via their forthcoming EP. An intriguing rock build envelops, as a garage-friendly spontaneity traverses into a satiating twist. “Steady as she goes,” the vocals let out longingly amidst tender guitar twangs, culminating in the warm and distortion-friendly “look into my eyes,” turn.

Bustling percussion and melancholic guitar tones grip in the final minute, heading into the enjoyable “look into my eyes,” reprise. Strutting a familiarly inviting rock sound with just enough twists and turns, “Tea Leaf” has us fully looking forward to the band’s upcoming EP.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2023’ Spotify playlist.
