This Charleston quintet plays a rowdy, earthy style of country-folk that they liken to “drunken gypsy sex” and “soulful drug-laced Americana.” What’s most promising — if not fully fleshed out yet — about the Tinfoil are the girl-boy vocals of Lily Slay and Mackie Bones.
Slay, in particular, has a husky-sexy voice well-suited to the band’s chosen style, which taps into that low-country sweat-boogie thing. They’re still rough around the edges, though, in that some songs are clearly inferior to others. But it’s early days and the promise feels legit.
With locals Old Milwaukee (celebrating an EP release), Sinners & Saints and Buck Mountain Stranglers.
