Tennyson – “SLIPPERZ” (Stereogum Premiere)

Brother and sister duo Tennyson previously popped up on Ryan Hemsworth’s Secret Songs series, a SoundCloud channel bursting with glitchy gems that tinker around with the boundaries of electronica. The siblings, who’ve made music together since busking as kids, just released a new track titled “SLIPPERZ.” Sprinkled with clinks and toy-box beats, it’s heady and lighthearted, with the cheeriness of a child in a sandbox. The affable phrase “I got your slippers and so much more” repeats in cut-up splices throughout the track, much like how a talking doll speaks when you pull the string on its back. Listen below.
