Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Tanoki. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked his unique musical approach.
I liked the environment and atmosphere created by Tanoki.
Fascinating and magical music that can speak directly to your soul.
A very cadenced and hypnotic sound that manages to make you travel with your imagination and somehow makes you feel free.
The richness of nuances is incredible and the listener is entertained by continuous harmonic and rhythmic changes.
A chord progression that is never banal and obvious.
Very beautiful the voice of Farah Elle who manages to add a touch of mystery to the melodic line.
Different and unique music that I recommend to everyone!
Let Go is Tanoki’s Single Out Now!
Eclectic and Unique!
Tanoki (Paul Mahon) is a producer and visual artist from Kilkenny, Ireland. Previously releasing music and visual projects under the title Geppetto, he has taken part in various festivals and been involved in the arts scene in Ireland for many years. His music weaves the line between electro, trip-hop and funk with cinematic and jazz elements. With a rich history of visual collaboration and video edit work for the likes of Linkin Park, Walking on Cars, Bantum, Loah, RSAG, GodKnows, Jerry Fish and more, musical inspiration was never too far. With a worldwide pandemic and time to knuckle down the debut album, File New emerged.
“Let Go” is a co-write with singer/songwriter Farah Elle, with her adding piano and lyrics to Tanoki’s initial idea. With Tanoki’s signature blend of real and synthetic instruments, the song is intricate and dynamic, featuring experimental electro sounds and hypnotic vocals from Farah Elle. The song also features vocal samples from the Twilight Zone, adding to the mesmeric vibe.
