Toronto’s TMPL are something special. We’re not just talking usual buzz-act chatter, no sir. We’re talking about a band (specifically the rather handsome pair of Kevin O’Brien and Eli Andreas) that have a proper handle on their sound and their future, one that pushes all available media to further their art.
With that in mind, we’re super-proud to be able to premiere their self-titled debut EP, and its lead single All We Are (featuring Terrell Morris). Theirs is a sound that’s hard to quantify, spanning as it does both genre and form – if All We Are is a hip-hop leaning cut, VOYIJ takes them through atmospheric indie and 17 takes a more instrumental (but no less arresting) bent. In short, here are two ridiculously exciting creators unconstrained by commercial diktats, bringing you the freshest vibes that you can enjoy for yourselves below.
