Live: Tula (DE/SWE) Tulas own stunning voice that carries us through the songs. Sort of like Empress, Mazzy Star or Stina Nordenstam, theres something homespun and beautiful yet sad and urgent about Tulas songs. - BOOMKATThe mysterious TULA made a big splash earlier this fall with their cover of Chris Isaaks classic Wicked Game, with support from some of the most influential blogs in the world. The Swedish quintet originally formed five years ago and have since moved to Berlin, becoming a steady fixture of Berlins club scene as well as performing live all around Germany.The band Fanny Tula, August Zachrisson, Andreas Dzialocha, Nikolai Petersen and Simon Meyer first emerged in 2010 and finally took their place in the spotlight four years later with the cover of Wicked Game. The cover instantly garnered a lot of attention and quickly rose to the coveted number two spot of the Hype Machines Popular chart in late September. Wicked Game picked up praise from international tastemakers like Pigeons & Planes, DIY and Hillydilly, with a Soundcloud play count of over 240 000, and over 100 000 plays on Spotify since its official release on October 10, to show for it.Wicked Game is the first track to be released from TULAs recording sessions with Swedish producer Klas hlund in the famed Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin, with TULAs next single River their most overt pop track to date also being taken from the same sessions. hlund, a long-time collaborator of Robyn who co-wrote and produced large parts of Robyns acclaimed Body Talk trilogy as well as her 2005 self-titled album, who has previously worked with acts like Tove Lo, Usher, Madonna and Kylie Minogue, helped bringing TULAs melodies to the front, while keeping the sensitive and affecting songwriting intact.Led by the delicate yet powerful vocals of Fanny Tula TULA is one of the most exciting new acts coming out of Scandinavia, with their unique brand of electronic pop, a mix of Massive Attack inspired nineties trip-hop and current day Scandipop.From Sweden comes Tula, which means something like to wander far into the forest and its basically a female singer from the folk tradition. Very sparse on the music side, with just a bit of electric piano, some guitar, a slow bang on the reduced drum kit and Tulas voice on top, sometimes double tracked. Dream pop, absolutely folk like and reminding me of This Mortal Coil, especially on Dont Say A Word. The b-side has two shorter pieces, oh too short pieces of more melancholia, and with Tula even with a poisonous rhythm. Too short, but thats life. Sad but true. An excellent breezy 7 of great elegant singing and folky music. - VITAL WEEKLEY
