DF3’s debut single Tell Me left me wanting more. The artists/producer trio began work on their first album this year, and Tell Me is a preview of the Alternative-synth-pop sound of DF3. Sound familiar?
Despite residing in the same genre as Bastille, this group’s sound is distinctive in the vocals and heavier reliance on the synth-aspect of their music. Tell Me gets a bit chaotic and hard to understand at points, but you cannot say it isn’t catchy.
DF3 almost reminds me of a male CHVRCHES, really. The only difference is that the male vocals aren’t like listening to a cheese-grater rubbing against a production and voice-editing set. The hook features a huge build-up, while each verse has a consistent outline that makes it easy to pick up the tune. I find this song easy to listen to and replay, especially when the chorus explodes out of the first couple of verses.
Overall, I would rate the song at:
This is an excellent step forward for DF3, and this track should be shared. The Synth-Pop/Alternative trend is coming alive and an excellent example of doing it right is Tell Me. I definitely recommend not sleeping on it.
