Launching straight into the thick of their sultry sound, new kids on the block TEIJ have honed their impressive skills to create debut single ‘Tell the Boys’. Pushing forward with progressive drum beats that give off a certain blues vibe, lead vocalist Tahlia Beeson saunters in amongst the bass line, oozing confidence and instantly creating the melody for the vocal hook, cheeky lyrics in tow.
Sporting their gutsy attitude, TEIJ have received positive reviews of live shows supporting Melbourne based Mansionair and Perth dwellers, Our Man in Berlin. ‘Tell the Boys’ carries just as much attitude.
As the bridge builds amongst the adept riffs, Beeson’s reverb heavy vocals step to the forefront with a take no prisoner’s attitude. Progression heeds its course as rhythm catches fire amongst the resounding twangs and lingering echoes.
If TEIJ glow over the airwaves, their live shows are sure to be killer. Catch them at Jimmy’s Den on September 5th and immerse yourself in a bold performance with some local favourites.
