Applied Communications – “Tomboy Femme”


Infusing “Mr. Sandman” nostalgia with modern glitchy pop infectiousness, “Tomboy Femme” is a hooky new single from Applied Communications. Prancing, twinkling keys lend a holiday-friendly warmness amidst blasts of blaring shimmering.

“Wish this was my home,” the vocals admit during an ardent textural uptick; a yearning for tranquility within pressure, and ensuing depression, feels apparent alongside the angst-y vocal punches and dynamic instrumentation, enamoring in both the doses of guitar distortion and twinkling keys. “Tomboy Femme” is a gripping success from Applied Communications, describing the release as “an angsty glitchy noise-pop song about gender and depression.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
