The intro of “Tongue-Tied” has a definite Post-Rock feel. Low-distortion electric guitar and bass define a timbre within a motif that is somehow both evolving and repetitive. Then, 30 seconds into the song, vocals enter. No, it isn’t a Post-Rock track. The voice is strong, but the song is best appreciated by focusing on the instruments dancing below the vocals. The mixing places the percussion at an equal level with the voice of Rory Mitchell, while the bass and guitar are at a lower texture level, despite the skills in the composition and playing of the instruments.
