<tfo>’s elegantly crafted music is a complimentary blend of indie, electronic, and melodic sounds. It is pop without the cliché, dance without the repetition, and retro without the novelty. Simply put, it is good music. <tfo>’s music combines intricately programmed beats, beautifully sculpted synths, meticulously performed & arranged instrumentation, and evocative vocal melodies.
