Australia's Tora have a reflective, immersive take on R&B songwriting.
Sitting somewhere between the lush hymns of D'Angelo and James Blake's early productions - but in a group format - their melodic experimentation is delivered with a sharply emotional tug.
Emphatically creative, Tora's slim catalogue to date has caused immense buzz online, and we're delighted to be able to share their new single.
Utilising the talents of Kaleen Mak, 'Wouldn't Be The Same' is a slinky R&B jammer that isn't afraid to deviate from the norm.
There's a slight wistful air to the vocals, the interplay between skittering rhythms and supple electronics emphasising the push/pull between classicism and experimentalism that ripples through Tora's work.
Something special for fans and a fine introduction to those yet to become acquainted with the Australian group, 'Wouldn't Be The Same' is yours to listen to now...
