Hailing from Cape Town, Tailor releases her charming demons in her debut album, The Dark Horse. Having written half of the album on the spot in a single day, the album is a collection of moody and dramatic stories detailing her baggage and desires to escape. “Wolf” perfectly introduces Tailor’s sinister structure as she sings, “As the darkness fills my soul / The way that I don’t know / Everything you do is oh so-so.” Tailor channels Fiona Apple‘s aggressive melancholy in The Dark Horse – no surprise considering the album was mastered by Ted Jensen who’s list of credits includes Fiona Apple’s Tidal and Norah Jones‘ Come Away With Me.
Although Tailor’s lyrical imagery is strong enough to not even need a video, “Wolf” is surreal and jerky, seducing with Michel Gondry-esque artistry.
