Strength In Tenderness EP
The debut EP, Strength In Tenderness forms t l k’s first extended portfolio, introducing their ethereal sound world, experimental production and thematic influences. For t l k, developing the EP has underlined the necessary nature of music making as a medium for psychological processing, carving space for deeper understandings of trauma, loss and selfhood to evolve.
Blending entrancing jazz shuffles with melantronic harmony, experimental vocal textures, synth swells and driving bass lines, the single honours what it feels to be alive in the processing of loss.

Next To The Mirror
Next To The Mirror is a nod to the inner child; a recognition that the pain we feel in others resides somewhere in ourselves. The track features intricate, layered vocals immersed in textural synths, swelling strings and meditative soft piano dialogues.

Frame Of Ted
The debut two-track single from t l k, Frame Of Ted forms a sonic expression of human friendship, departure and identity.

The single includes two tracks: Frame Of Ted and its introduction, Big Box Of Something.
