New Music: Tuval 'My Love Don't Worry'
Fusing genres, techniques and musical textures, Brighton local Tuval creates a sound which is both hauntingly familiar and refreshingly new with his latest track ‘My Love Don’t Worry’.
Reminiscent of 60s psychedelia with darker 80s new romantic undertones and echoes of 90s icons Jeff Buckley and Elliot Smith, ‘My Love Don’t Worry’ is a hazy harmony of uplifting chimes, delicate layers of vocals and swirling textures all held together by tendons of strings.
Building on his experiences from his first self-published EP Overseas, Tuval’s ‘My Love Don’t Worry’ is cleaner in production but no less organic in its feel. Its cyclical structure creates a timelessness to the song that feels both innocent and complex. Like his earlier work, Tuval manages to transcend his age to produce music that feels otherworldly and of another time, but now there is an undercurrent of experience and saturnine strings to create a bittersweet sound with more depth.
A constantly evolving artist, the multi-instrumentalist has hinted that his work is turning to exploring the relationship between sound and visuals, whilst new collaborations will see his sonic palate expand in the direction of synth and experimental soundscapes in the future. Here lies Tuval’s strength as a young musician in the modern world: his work is both rooted in the successes of the classics, be they pop culture icons or Baroque timbres, but also constantly pushing at the boundaries of comfort zones and established definitions. Dynamic, driven and ready to take his music and art into his own hands, Tuval is a musician who is crafting his own path and, no doubt with growing exposure, a dedicated audience will follow.
Currently based between Brighton and London, you can keep an eye on Tuval’s upcoming live shows here. Judging by his work so far, it is a pretty good resolution for 2018 to make sure you catch him whilst you can.
