Black Taffy next up on Leaving Records

Black Taffy - Elder Mantis

If you’re looking for something fresh and vibrant, then look no further than Black Taffy.

The Dallas-based composer and performer known to his family as Donovan Jones blend a potent mix of ambient music with big bass and percussion.

Following ‘Geraldine’ first cut from his forthcoming Elder Mantis full-length, Jones has shared the wonderfully titled ‘Lantern Flies in Mist’.

With its enticing head-nodding groove, it’s a track that slowly gets inside your head and won’t let go.

The album we’re told features some of the “most therapeutic instruments,” to sample and remodel such as the harp, guitar, piano, and the koto, a traditional Japanese stringed instrument.

Definitely, a record that grows on you with every listen – hit play and hear for yourself.


Elder Mantis, releases 15/02 via Leaving Records. Pre-order here.
