OUT OF THE DARKNESS COMES THE LIGHT, AS THE TONGUE DELIVERS HIS MOST ACCOMPLISHED ALBUM TO DATE: SURRENDER TO VICTORY

The 15-track album sees The Tongue coming into his own as artist and collaborator, articulating a positive vision beyond the confines of modern Australian hip hop. From the opening track the listener can hear this development, as the gorgeous soulful vocal of Ngaiire illuminates the song ‘Bittersweet’. From there we traverse introspection to self-assuredness, religion to love, and the allure of clear perspective over confusion.

The guests on the record indicate the standing enjoyed by The Tongue, with luminaries like Suffa from Hilltop Hoods on the song ‘Champion Sound’; in-demand youngsters such as Illy and Tom Scott (Homebrews,NZ); and contemporaries Jimmy Nice (Spit Syndicate) and Thundamentals joining an impressive tracklist. The Tongue holds court though, weaving in and out like a true master of ceremonies, dictating proceedings with clever wordplay and flow.

This is not to underplay the incredible production brought to this album by Cam Bluff. Moving between the contemporary sound of local hip hop to the ever-changing sounds coming out of the USA, Cam Bluff has created a fresh sound that feels like 2013 without imitating whatever is presently buzzing through the hype machine.This is the album to stop procrastinating and embrace The Tongue. A clear talent driven by a great imagination; he has defied the heavy testosterone of the MC battles where he began and subsequently outgrew; he has held a capacity audience at The Sydney Opera House in the palm of his hand as he recited Dr Seuss; he has toured nationally on many occasions to sellout crowds. This is his crowning achievement.'Surrender To Victory' is out March 29 on Elefant Traks.
