Tigermilk is the creation of Paulina Tala. There’s a lot to be heard from Paulina’s musical approach. It’s spotty, obscure, and yet sophisticated with a roughly beaten path that she formed herself.
“Talátur” is Tigermilk’s single taken from her upcoming Turi EP. It’s sleek, spooky and soft, and the haunting and silky vocals are bound to resonate within you. The orchestration of instruments blend together in such a way that, as off-kilter as this track may sound, it’s still gorgeous and sophisticated. The track fades in to what seems like a drum & flute circle. In comes the eerie harmonies which closely resembles perhaps a chant or ritualistic verse.
There are many shifts within “Talátur” — at times it is thick with instruments interweaving and other times it calms enough to easily piece together the roles that each instruments has adopted. This song encapsulates a blend of classically old folk with modernized avant-garde dark folk.
Keep a look-out for Tigermilk’s upcoming Turi EP; I think it’ll be a tasteful yet strangely skewed masterpiece.
