[LISTEN] Common Tongues - Pioneer [IAI PREMIÈRE]

Stretching out their sound, Common Tongues have taken elements indie-rock, folk and electronic-music to new sonic boundaries. Their latest single ‘Pioneer’ thrives with guts and personality, as the single progresses in adventurous structure. Common Tongues use intricate harmonies, searing violins & bubbling electronics to create absorbing live experiences and records that reveal immersive arrangements and lyrical themes of conflict, decline and rebirth.
