Quick, what do you think would happen if you mixed Mac Ayres with a teeny bit of Sade? I used to wonder about this (and various other questions) because I like mashups. I think you’d get something that sounds a bit like Tendavillage. The group’s “Waiting For You Love” has some distinct retro soul moments, but also some chill moments wherein we’re given some top-notch vocals and instrumentation. Plus, the song is a bop through and through. Lead singer Kate Melvina draws influence from jazz, pop, R&B and soul to give us music that deals with love, loss and personal growth. We can tell that in bunches on the vocals she’s putting down and out into the world on “Love.” It’s a bit hard to believe that this is the same group who made a tribute song to Ralph Wiggum. But if you listen to that one and the Wiggum track, you can also see that it makes sense for them to be so…groovy. Check out “Waiting” below and remember to support dope music in all its forms.
