SOME ARE CONTENT TO WATCH ON AS LIFE UNFOLDS: HAPPY TO EXPERIENCE THE MOVEMENT FROM A DISTANCE. OTHERS BURST INTO LIFE, LIKE A REPTILE IMPATIENTLY BREAKING OPEN ITS CARAPACE. THE LATTER APTLY DESCRIBES THE TONGUE, AND THIS, HIS BRAND NEW ALBUM ALTERNATIVE ENERGY.
Blessed with an infectious style and charisma, The Tongue has a knack for creating sticky phrases that stay with you wrapped inside hooky flows that suck you in. His style has an elegant complexity, dispatching pop culture references with acerbic wit, speaking straight to true hip hop heads but connecting with the casual listener. Bold enough to carry a flashy bravado but wise enough to temper it with sincerity: not all emo, nor all ego. The Tongue has always promised much; his versatility as a freestyle MC is deservedly celebrated: he's a very likeable frontman with a natural live presence. Alternative Energy is the album that captures The Tongue's thirst for life's curiosities and the vibrancy of his personality.
Production comes courtesy of some of Australia's best: Elgusto, M-Phazes, Dizz1 and others have created a crisp and contemporary backdrop that moves haphazardly through bright and menacing moods. The Tongue talks of love and frustration; politics and bullshit; coming up and down in a city of sin.
Lending vocals to the album are Gift of Gab, Urthboy, Ngaiire and Joyride.
