Tanya Auclair Creates Sonic Shapes On 'Origami'

Tanya Auclair has been remarkably consistent in her relatively short, yet fruitful musical career. First, she dropped the underground gem that was her Thrum EP, then she collaborated with YULT on The Animal Inside, and most recently she covered the Roy Davis Jr./Peven Everett classic "Gabriel," giving her an impressive three-for-three record. Yesterday she released her most recent project, Origami, which is possibly my favorite work from her so far. Consisting of three genre-defying songs that incorporate everything from electronic soul, to folk, to pop, Tanya is carving a nice little niche for herself in the UK's blossoming soul scene. At times reminiscent of Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano (particularly on opener "Sverige"), her vocals float over an assortment of unfamiliar, yet interesting instruments, crafting abstract songs seemingly out of thin air. Take a listen to the aforementioned "Sverige" below, then pick up the full EP at Tanya's Bandcamp page. Be quick as the first 1000 downloads are free.
