TOMGIRL Set The Local Bar High With The Dauntless Single 'Darker Now'

By  July 21, 2016

If you haven't heard of TOMGIRL, it's perfectly fine. The buzzing new duo, made up of Singaporean Cherie Ko (who you might know from Obedient Wives Club) and Australian-based musician Ted Doré, have burst onto the scene with their cinematic dark looks and sound.

Their stunning debut single Darker Now is an alternative number reminiscent of Scottish-American band Garbage that infuses noir pop elements with Cherie's alluring vocals. For this track, Cherie set out to fully express herself and create a world not only made of music, with the idea of a Bonnie and Clyde-esque criminal story for the music video, and the grimy audio and visuals compliment each other well. You could totally picture it in the soundtrack to a Tarantino film.

Darker Now is just the curtain-raiser for their upcoming self-titled debut album (dropping September 2, 2016) and it's exciting to see what else this rising duo can bring to the table. The single is now out on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal and Vevo.
