TOMBOY

Synthpop duo Tmboy (ex Tomboy) returns to Mercury on 01.12

Tmboy (ex Tomboy) is the electronic duo of Sarah Aument and Will Shore and their music should tickle the curiosity of fans of Sylvan Esso. While Sarah paints rolling hills of stars with her keyboard stacks, Will mans the beat machine while also filling out the sound on a real vibraphone. Soulful and genuine, Sarah's vocals are reminiscent of an intriguing blend of Chvrches and Bjork, with lyrics way above the average for what sounds like moody party music. 

Their next show is a late night party at Mercury Lounge, starting at midnight on Friday, January 12th. Also performing: Novelty Daughter, Akki, No Intimate, R.E.L. Check out tense and edgy single "Roll Out" from their 2014 debut LP "Tomboy." -  Meghan Rose

NYC Electro-pop duo Tomboy unveils video for "Moths"

Tomboy is a NYC duo that offers a rather personal and stripped down take on the industrial-pop genre, even though the term "pop" is a little stretched here, since the band's material, to date, never really unleashes pop music's signature "big chorus," preferring instead to keep the melodic tension chained. Their approach is quite minimalistic and measured, with rarely more than two parts overlapping with each other, which opens up a lot of space for Sarah Aument's strong and somewhat Bjorkesque vocals.  "Roll Out," (streaming, video here) is the first single/video from their self-titled EP, released earlier in April, and moves from a dark, edgy industrial-dance verse towards a more open and traditional chorus. "Moths," on the other end, is a moody midtempo built on on a web of percussive samples and sudden synth slashes. Kudos to director Maria Burns fur the uber stylish, just released video, streaming below.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best electronic songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
