TESS ROBY "Ballad 5" 12 Inch On Ultra Clear


Introducing Tess Roby, a 23 year old musician and photographer born in Toronto and now living in Montreal. "Ballad 5" is a song of love and loss in the humid Montreal summer - the sound of Parc Avenue in the blue light of dawn. Her music echoes the cascading pulse of Steve Reich, the drone of Stereolab, and the melancholic drift of Durutti Column, and her voice lands somewhere between Broadcast's Trish Keenan and Nico. On record she is accompanied by her brother Eliot Roby on guitar.

"Ballad 5" is the lead single from her debut LP out later this year on Italians Do It Better
