When Dublin-based five-piece Tandem Felix released their EP Comma in 2015, it was heralded as the work whose textural and lyrical subtlety distinguished them from a multitude of other folk-tinged guitar acts. And then, for two years, silence. Dead silence.
Emerging from the Dublin scene that produced Girl Band, Saint Sister and Spies, Tandem Felix is a band that list Sparklehorse and Wilco as key influences. But as a song like Were You There ably testifies, after two dormant years David Tapley has matured as a songwriter, the melancholy angst of his early work given space to float in these newly lush, formally experimental arrangements.
