A Band To Keep An Ear On: The New Tarot

A Band To Keep An Ear On: The New Tarot

Well this is weird, wacky even. But the more you listen, the more wonderful the pulsating, twisted single from The New Tarot becomes.  "Chain of Command," the first track from this band is a turbulent song, yet strangely slick. The song's concept is unsettling yet familiar; lead vocalist, Monika Walker laments that it's "Getting harder to be human," in a cyber age where everything exists below the surface.  From the warped beats to the buzzing synths, wharops and whoops give way to a breathy pat at the end. Glowing alluringly, the song is like an enchanting red light.  The Brooklyn sisters Karen (keys) and Monika (vox) Walker have roped in Jeffrey (drums) Keyanna (guitar) and Dave (bass) to, as they put it, ‘follow them down the rabbit hole.’ That’s pretty much how it feels. -Francesca Baker
