If you’re in the mood for a dreamy pop group then I’ve got a great new song for you to check out. Tangerine are Korean-American sisters Marika & Miro Justad and Tobias Kuhn – and Icelandic electro dream-pop band Vök, fronted by queer vocalist Margrét Ran. The ethereal sounding track features an introspective romantic set of lyrics that are accompanied by big drums and a prominent melodic bass track. The guitar is washed out and clean and I get a bit nostalgic for the 80’s Police or early 90’s Enya. “Suffering little deaths” and a giggle in the vocal performance suggests some sexual undertones into the innocent romance of a soft vocal timbre. Around the three minute mark a subtle trumpet track joins the ensemble to bring “Chains” home while the vocals start going in a circular motion and the beat gets steadily more busy. “Chains” is enchanting and a lovely listen, check it out below.
