The debut EP, Armour, from London duo called TENDER made of long time friends James and Dan, is a huge one, specifically true of their perfectly built track “Belong”. The lyrics and composition on this are just to die for and a influenced by acts such as Caribou, Air, The National and Tame Impala. You will like the pristine sound, the keys and the soft-sailing vocals on the whole EP… “A duo. Lifelong friends. Operating out of a bedroom studio in a North London basement. Dark Grooves with room to breathe.”
In their own words : “Belong is about a self destructive individual that is fully aware of their flaws. They can’t accept being wanted or being responsible for someone else’s emotions, yet relies on the very thing they fear to limit bringing physical and emotional harm the themselves.“
