Tale of Two - "Demons"

There's been a recent movement towards dark folk, and we're here for it. The latest band we've found fitting that genre is Tale of Two. Consisting of Alfie Jackson (formerly of Holloways) and Gemma Rogers, the duo have recently released "Demons." "Demons" is a theatrical folk song with both members harmonizing for lead vocals throughout the song. There's definitely a cabaret element to it, and if I was going to compare this to anyone, I'd call it a less campy Charming Disaster. It's definitely a bigger song than you would expect to come from a folk duo with added elements of vaudeville. 

According to a press release, "This song is about how we strive through life believing the lies fed to us by the powers that be and how we rage against the tide that tries to hold us in our place. The song is about anger. Anger with the world and its lies and greed. What do you do when the captain jumps ship long before all the rats? Come on a journey with us through the murky wine dark waves for a taste of melancholy and despair."

You can watch the video for "Demons" below. For more on Tale of Two, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
