LISTEN TO “TERMITES”
Philadelphia, PA’s Tall Friend are thrilled to share the premiere of “Termites” together with NPR’s “Songs We Love”. The song comes from the band’s upcoming Tawl Friend EP reissue. Originally self-released last February with a limited physical release, Tawl Friend is an incredible collection of stark indie pop songs and heartbreaking beauty. The EP will be re-released via Exploding In Sound Records on January 27th. Led by singer/songwriter Charlie Pfaff, her songs are raw and honest, filled with introspection, fears, and longing. Written and recorded when she was just 17 years old, Tawl Friend is an unfiltered look into Char’s mind.
“In “Termites,” Tall Friend gets at the heart of youthful romance with peculiar, scientific specificity over delicate and sparse lo-fi instrumentation. Frontwoman Charlie Pfaff sings a story of lust and loss throughout the five-track release, but does so in “Termites” with cautious fragility, in an unexpected — and, frankly, gross — manner. She adopts the role of a tree and gives an unnamed person the attributes of a termite: not wholly parasitic, because wood must be dead for the insect to thrive.”
Tall Friend will release their full length debut Safely Nobody’s in August.
