Tirzah - No Romance

Stylish to the extreme.

Whack ‘Tirzah’ into Google Translate and you’ll find it’s a Hebrew name that translates literally as “she is my delight” - and off the back of the Greco-Roman signing’s first two cuts, there’s no doubt this name suits her down to the ground. Last year’s debut EP ‘I’m Not Dancing’ was an eight minute blitz of stuttering beats and soulful vocals, and with her sophomore effort Tirzah has taken this recipe up a whole other level.

Case in point - title track ‘No Romance’. With longtime collaborator Mica Levi (aka Micachu) providing the sample-heavy pop hook, Tirzah’s vocals loop, skip and echo this track into dangerously addictive territory. ‘Style’ sees the duo take a more abrasive route, a distortion-heavy synth line built for nodding heads and shuffling feet anchoring the track firmly on the dance floor.

“You’ve got to have style,” says Tirzah on that same track, and it’s something she knows all too well. ‘No Romance’ is one part Grimes-esque electro and two parts DIY-pop nous - stylish to the extreme.
