Combining tribal and folk genres has rarely created such a soft and unusually delicate sound as Tu Fawning
achieves in their second album, A Monument
. The album gives listeners a hauntingly beautiful mixture of strength and vulnerability, combined with uniquely accented melodies that give the album a refreshing feel from start to finish. With accenting textures and poetically progressive lyrics, A Monument
will grab your attention and won't let it go. "Anchor," the album's opening track and first single, starts with a simple drum pattern before floating harmonies and other percussion delicately accent lead singer Corrina Repp's flawless vocals. The song progresses to continuously add more layers, first vocally, then instrumentally with intensely syncopated synthesizers, adding a final playful spin on the dark song.
