t l k + boci
t l k returns to Sheffield as part of their debut UK tour, in line with the release of their sophomore EP, Primed For Loss.
Bristol-based producer and vocalist t l k stretches the thin fabric of selfhood, leaning deeply into the ethereal realm. Fluid in genre and form, and emphasising improvisation as a core tenet for psychological processing, the enchanting sound of t l k is permeating the Bristol scene, with debut EP ‘Strength In Tenderness’ (2022) solidifying them as “one of the city’s most exciting experimental artists” (BBC Introducing).
With the “delicate strength and clarity” of their vocals (B24/7) at the core of rich, undulating arrangements, t l k’s live show blends a palette of electronic minimalism, ambient soundscape, skewed rhythms, experimental sound design and neo-classical sensibilities to form something gently assertive, enlivening, ever-evolving, and altogether transfixing.
t l k has played across the country, including We Out Here, Jazz Stroud, Sage Gateshead and Snape Maltings, where they began recording their sophomore EP, ‘Primed For Loss’, on residency with Britten Pears Arts. The EP is set for release in Spring 2023 on Ishmael Ensemble’s label, Severn Songs, introducing a series of potent writings and a musical maturity well beyond their years.
Support comes from ○boci○, Bristol’s beloved violin looper and songwriter.
