Watch: Tough Knuckles – “Listen to the Thunder”

Tough Knuckles Intentionally lo-fi pop is a tricky style of music to master. It’s also incredibly overused these days, and rarely in a compelling way (random, crunchy feedback and practically indecipherable vocals do not necessarily equal good songwriting).

Maybe Tough Knuckles will save the genre. Winston Tyler’s one-man act sounds vaguely like a songwriter from the ’60s stuck in some kind of music box contraption but, tropical guitar and gentle piano melodies on hand, seems completely content to be there. His debut album is out now.
