Taking inspiration from the beloved heroine of classic literature, Tess Océane Joffroy has crafted a sound to offer an immensely refreshing twist on the modern pop-scape. Her slightly anguished, mysterious voice has an uncanny storytelling ability that’s both gripping and intriguing, a rarity that’s finally come to life in her debut EP, Tess.
Tess’ self-titled EP is a majestic collection of five tracks that see her songwriting skills explore every corner of emotion all with the same unconstrained sincerity that’s earned her a place amongst the likes of Grimes, Maggie Rogers, and more. From the radio friendly “Love Gun”, to the swelling ambience of “Endlessly”, Tess offers a fitting soundtrack for every moment.
If you find yourself craving more after getting lost in this EP, don’t worry, Tess has over 30 titles in her arsenal, and a full-length LP is on the horizon. Have a listen to the next wave of indie, below, and be sure to throw Tess some love on Facebook and Instagram.
