Top Tracks: TALLISKER – Salanfe

Thanks in no small part to the success of acts such as Bon Iver and Clean Bandit, there has been a sudden trend in combining electronica with more traditional styles. Riding the crest of that wave with the utmost ease and majesty is Parisian performer and producer TALLISKER. Try to imagine the musical lovechild of Sigur Ros and Aphex Twin and you’ll find yourself pretty close to the intriguing world awaiting you in her debut single ‘Salanfe’. The opening rise and fall of the classically influenced string section is soon interrupted by intricate percussion and a myriad of intruding electronic entities. The end result is the sound of order and chaos intertwining to create this diverse soundscape. TALLISKER’s debut EP Heliotrop is out 11th November.
