Tender Central’s aesthetic is a deft, eclectic blend of sonics which she melds together with the provocative purity in her voice. Her latest single, “Wake Me Up,” puts her versatile sensibilities on display. Intricate tribal-leaning percussion bubbles underneath an infectious Caribbean-tinged bass line as her airy, almost atmospheric vocals float effortlessly above. Her meditations on the constant hustle and bustle of life and how they can lull you into a monotonous stupor are as penetrating as they are beautiful. Listen.
“Wake Me Up” is out 6/17 on Boom Ting Recordings.
