TANTRiXX

BandEDMAlternative

Already making waves on Triple J after reaching "1" on the unearthed electro charts TANTRiXX combines the sultry forces of Tan Ti'en (Vocals), Nunz Vacca (Drum), Nathan Sinclair (Guitars), Joey Bruford (Bass) & Grant Ryan (Keys) spinning an electro hurricane of hard-hitting breakbeat powerpop.

Biography

Where Blondie was gettin' fresh with 'Rapture' in '81, TANTRiXX is gettin' fresh with 'Daddy'. Vehement vocals over rubenesque raps and electro-now sounds take you gliding through what might be the soundtrack to your fucked up days daze. Beats placate. Plaintive cries and whispers of desire might mess with your head but they'll also keep you moving so they can't take over. TANTRiXX are for the post-modern set; dark like Portishead, rough'n'ready like Peaches, in your face like The Prodigy, free like Kate Bush stoned off her tits; rolling like the Eurythmics as they led the new romantics & moody like punks coming down. Ultimately, it's none of the above because TANTRiXX have straddled the new wave & are riding it like there's no tomorrow.

Emerging from Perth, TANTRiXX is the brainchild of singer/songwriter/producer Tan Ti'en (ex La Chambre & The Lipz). Her vocal and song writing style have attracted few comparisons. Outside of the studio, TANTRiXX combines the forces of Tan on vocals, Nunz Vacca (Drums), Joey Bruford (Bass), Nathan Sinclair (Guitars), and newest addition Grant Ryan (Keys, FX and Vocals) resulting in an up-close-and-personal live apocalypse of high-energy electro-hip-pop that is dark, light, & nowhere in between.

SYMBiOTiXX def: the relationship of different organisms living in close association…

All I know 4 real is ur guiding light

So please don't F*#k with my mind

I'm on the ground
So Up & Down
We go Up & Down

We Go Up
We Go Down

So please don't F*#k with my mind

We go Up...

We go down down down down....

I just can’t speak
My sex is weak
I’m on the ground
So up and down
We fool around
But still I’m down
So I build u up
Just to tear u down
It’s how it is 4 me
It’s history
It just repeats
And it’s a mystery
So I build it up
Just to tear it down
Try 2 find the light
But 2 the night I’m bound

To the Night I'm Bound
So please don't F*#k with my mind

Now I try to speak...

...But I just repeat

Now I try to speak
But I just repeat
And I just Repeat
And these words are cheap
So I chew them up
Just to spit them out
Talkin' back to myself
Tryin' 2 figure it out
And the more that I think
Is the more that I am
Just a pawn in a game
That I don’t understand
But I try and I try
Yet I never know why
All I know 4 real
Is ur guiding light

All I know 4 real
Is ur guiding light

To the Night I'm Bound
So please don't F*#k with my mind

SYMBiOTiXX
def: the relationship of different organisms living in close association…

I just can’t speak
My sex is weak
He locks me down
So he can move around
Inconsistency
Shakes the tree
Misguided by
Confided lies
I try and try
Only to find
He shakes me down
To break me down
To take me down
To stake me down
The fates been drawn
B4 the shoes are worn
This hearts been torn
By hands I’ve known
Her city’s overthrown
Her castle stands alone

Where’s the light to home (repeat)

Chorus:
U could be my light to home

I just can’t speak
My sex is weak
We’re cheek to cheek
But still I’m weak
U c it’s pain I seek
'Coz of history
It just repeats
The way it is for me
I guess it’s life u know
This is how we grow
But if you kiss me now
Under this mistletoe
U could be the one
To make it cum undone
And show me
Where there’s a light to home

Chorus:
U could be my light to home

Now I try to speak
But I just repeat
But I just repeat
And these words r cheap
So I chew them up
Just to spit them out
Talkin' back to myself
Tryin' to figure it out
And the more that I think
Is the more that I am
Just a pawn in a game
That I don’t understand
But I try and still try
Yet I never know why
All I know 4 real
Is ur guiding light

Chorus:
U could be my light to home
Light my way from dusk 'til dawn
Pull me in when my path is wrong
Be the one that I can count on

Again I just can’t speak
My sex is weak
I’m on the ground
So up and down
We fool around
But still I’m down
So I build u up
Just to tear u down
It’s how it is 4 me
It’s history
It just repeats
And it’s a mystery
So I build it up
Just to tear it down
Try to find the light
But 2 the night I’m bound

Chorus:
U could be my light to home
Light my wayfrom dusk 'til dawn
Pull me in when my path is wrong
Be the one that I can count on

And on and on and on...

PiLLZ

So Cold
You struck like thunder
Broke me in like an animal
Got me wet
And then you dragged me under
My cup is empty now
It once was full

So Bad
Like a screamin' demon
Lady luck with a devil's tongue
You took my soul
And you gave me no reason
For everything we had
That's come undone

You get thrills
From my body baby
I get chillz now
Just thinken' about ya
I take pillz
So I can deal with ya
There's no appeal Now
In this Behaviour?

(Hot cold - Blood chills - I take pillz - Don't need your love no more)

So Bare
You stripped me of my
Good & bad
I couldn't be anyone
Itz not fair to take part of my
History
But now the damage is done

So Old
You got me feelin'
I've been told your lies
Are nothing new
You're so bold
To profess all of your love
Then hold back the promises that you…

Gave you thrills
From my body baby
I get chills now
Just thinken' about ya
I take pillz
So I can deal with ya
What's the appeal Now
In this Behaviour?

(Hot cold - Blood chills - I take pillz - Don't need your love no more)

DADDY

Written By: Tanaya Ti'en

Ur a dirty little rat with a gold tooth on
And u cum in2 the club, u think it turns me on
But the way u flash ur wallet now it’s plain 2 c
U aint no sugardaddy & u’ll never be
An imposta to yer crew, that u bring w/ u
Coz u let up like u spend up but u never do
Little daddy take my caddy, & I’ll take the club
Put ur money where your mouth is, or keep it shut

In the back room daddy
I'll show u my stuff
In the back room daddy
Ur dollar's enough
In the back room daddy
I'll show u my stuff
In the back room daddy
ur dollar's never enough

U see, I got a little policy it goes like this:
u got a minute 2 impress b4 ur on the guest list
no time for tyre-kickers hunney I get bored
don’t be touchin whatchoo can’t afford
there’ll be times when u think that u r in with a chance
I don’t consider men who don’t wanna dance
you won’t get lucky, it’s not what it’s about
get off my table till the peso’s come out

In the back room daddy
U got it goin on
In the back room daddy
Ur money turns me on
In the back room daddy
U got it goin on
In the back room daddy
money turns me on

C'mon be my daddy

U gotta get on board

C'mon be my daddy

Don’t touch what u cant afford

I HAVE SOMETHING, just FOR U
Hold on tight daddy, it’s gonna go off with a bang

MADE OF STEEL, IT’S SO REAL, it's HERE IN THE BACK ROOM
It’s soooo big daddy, just the way I like it

ITS THE MONEY THAT TURNS ME ON HOPE U DIDN’T THINK IT WAS U?
Put that little thing away daddy and show me the cash

YEAH, I’VE GOT THE CLUB, SO NOW DADDY, UR TIME IS THRU.

It’ll only hurt for a second

Daddy
I'll show u my stuff
Daddy
Ur dollar's enough
Daddy
I'll show u my stuff

Ur dollar's never enough.
