Tomboy is the musical moniker of NYC residents Sarah Aument and Will Shore, longtime friends who finally joined forces last year. The duo’s spacious electro-pop references everything from Björk to Chairlift to Dirty Projectors to Purity Ring. “Moths,” the final pre-release single from their self-titled EP, matches booming low-end and skittering island percussion with Aument’s strikingly assured vocal performance. The music is complex yet streamlined, and when Aument cries, “Oh, you bring me back to life,” the vibrancy in her voice affirms that sentiment. Listen below.
Tomboy is coming soon.
