Trying to blend electronic music with folk sounds like it would be a disaster. Already you’ve probably got an image in your subconscious of Calvin Harris wearing tweed and meddling with a banjo but thankfully Ayrshire newcomers Electric Tiffany have managed to avert this danger.
Fronted by Finnish singer Liina Turtoten, it’s no surprise that there’s a strong Nordic influence running through Electric Tiffany’s veins on Follow. With angelic vocals gracefully accompanying a beautiful, rhythmic Harp, the song goes AWOL around the 2 minute mark where everything goes a bit melancholy, a shift that is both jarring but at the same time a pleasant change considering the saturation of folk pop nowadays.
While at points it can seem like the band are a bit over-encumbered, Electric Tiffany are undoubtedly ambitious in what they set out to do. Any act that tries to incorporate folk, electro and nordic music into the one song is worth taking note of on their courage alone and on that point alone, Electric Tiffany are an act worth taking note of.
