Good Day Noir Family, Tanoki is back with a full album and this is what I think about it.
The refined and modern compositional style proposed by this artist is reconfirmed in this magnificent album.
An intense sonic journey that has the ability to hypnotize the listener. While listening to the beautiful songs from his debut album File New I closed my eyes and imagined traveling the universe.
I have seen galaxies with unique colors and worlds capable of challenging any physical law just like Tanoki’s music.
All the songs on the album are solid and follow a coherent thread. An intriguing atmosphere, and a magical feeling that manages to speak directly to the heart and soul of the listener.
A superb artistic work that I recommend to everyone.
File New is Tanoki’s Album Out Now!
Tanoki is the electronica/trip-hop/funk/experimental genre-blending project of Paul Mahon. Born and raised in Kilkenny, Ireland, Tanoki’s music features a myriad of styles, from funky brass to ethereal piano, walking the line between delight in technological and fear of what it may do to human connection.
His songs blend human samples and powerful performances with rich synths and washed-out arpeggios, making present the question of technology’s beauty and danger. Tanoki’s work so far has gained the attention of RTÉ 2FM, KCLR 96FM, Hot Press and DeMars Entertainment to name a few, earning ‘Track of the Week’ for all three singles from the upcoming album. ‘File New’ is Tanoki’s debut album.
