Tirzah - No Romance

   - Great tune right here. Tirzah released a fantastic EP last year titled I’m Not Dancing which you should most definitely check out if you like this tune. You can listen to the title track here but a word to the wise, it is extremely infectious… and there is a very high probability that the tune will get stuck in your head for weeks… If you are cool with the current earworm stuck in your head, stay away. If on the other hand you have ‘I came in like a wrecking ball’ playing on repeat in your noggin then this is your antidote. As for No Romance, it is off Tirzah’s new EP of the same name which will be released in late April via Greco-Roman

On a side note, I had never really looked into the record label Greco-Roman before Tirzah. I just did a little Google search and came across an article on The Guardian from September of last year which is worth a read. [ Link here ] Long story short, dong on titties Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and friends are looking to uncover gems like Tirzah. That is a goal I can get behind. Check out their Soundcloud page here

[ update ] If you need any proof that digging through their Soundcloud page is worth it just check out this, or this
