I cannot see clearly, it seems I’m always falling asleep it warms me up, it turns me on when I’ll be closer, don't wake me up I cannot see clearly it's been a hard day, trying to see what warms me up, what turns me on when I’ll be closer, don't wake me up you said my name and now I’m real you try to remind me what is real

Slimer Smile 03:09
I’m bouncing between the words of my name, one means courage and the other is like home you smile, I just wanna hold you tight dive into another time, a vision of an elsewhere, like you I’m fast asleep, oh please don't bother me now just stay near me and don't pass the boundary lines are you really gonna make a big mistake? am I really gonna make the same mistake? are we really gonna think that we'll be safe? you smile and I just wanna hold you tight dive into another time, a vision of an elsewhere like you

I’m trying to reach you but I fall down, I see this image in a mirror, oh please don’t tell me take it easy ‘cause what is easy is not for me could I be the girl you want to see? it doesn’t matter when you want to see me I saw your image it wasn’t real I saw it again it was a dream find a better way to be there find a way to stay together I’m trying again to reach your shoulders the sky is too high but I hold on oh please don’t tell me take it easy ‘cause what is easy is not for me

about

Having previously released two demos under her Sequoyah Tiger moniker, the Italian producer Leila Gharib returns with her debut EP on Germany’s Morr Music.

"Ta-Ta-Ta-Time" comprises five songs Leila Gharib wrote in her home town Verona between 2013 and 2015. Gharib, who had previously been a member of the local Indie Rock trio Bikini The Cat and co-founded the performing arts duo Barokthegreat, both takes her cues from various forms of arts and also makes use of them to create a multi-disciplinary gesamtkunstwerk.

If it is the zine she designed for the release of her first demo "Brother/Brother" in late 2014 or a slew of washed out, impressionistic videos she directed herself, she channels a passion for that which inspires her: Her so-called own "visual alphabet" is made up from a wide array impressions like drawings of animals, VHS aesthetics, adventure books, amongst others. Gharib even describes the EP’s title as a "graphic stutter" which expresses "the duration of an emotional experience", much like what she calls a "Bolero effect" in regards to her music, which refers not to Ravel´s famous piece, but to a spanish, traditional dance of the same name, which heavily relies on the interplay of the progression of time and rhythmic repetition.

It would thus perhaps not be wrong to label "Ta-Ta-Ta-Time" EP a piece of Synth Pop. Only that "Synth" here would be short for "synaesthetic": Gharib’s songs, which take their cues from traditional genres like Doo-Wop as much as from contemporary experimental Pop acts like Panda Bear, refer directly to visual art and language. Language is indeed the starting point of Sequoyah Tiger’s songs, which revolve around her processed and at times layered vocals, complemented by gripping rhythms and rich harmonies. Breakages, repetition and delays are not flaws, but rather integral elements in Gharib’s songwriting process, in which the musical quality of language develops a life of its own. Sequoyah Tiger’s opaque lyrics aim less at creating narratives than generating new meanings and expressing emotions which tie in perfectly with her highly allusive music.
