After a bunch of 7″s on cult labels as Sonic Cathedral and Planting Seeds, Lulu Grave and Henrique Laurindo released debut album ˜Camera & Tremor” in July 2010 on Beat-Mo Records.
The album acclaimed the band as one of the most influential in the kingdom of indie rock with a psych / shoegaze background.
The Tamborines took the DIY attitude to the extreme by building their own studio, recording and producing the album themselves and releasing it on their own imprint.
Musically, it drops hints of the noir displayed by the Velvets, the fuzz of the Mary Chain and the lo-fi pop of Guided By Voices, all packed with a Sonic Youth-fuelled attitude.
However, ˜Camera & Tremor” showed that The Tamborines have developed a sound of their own which has been accurately described as “a scalding blast of sculptured noise.”
Following a busy live season with two Europe tours and festivals in Spain and Germany, The Tamborines are now focusing on new album, planned for release in 2012.
Last single “Black and Blue”, out April 18th 2011, got instant airplay from influent BBC djs as Steve Lamacq, Gideon Coe and Lauren Laverne and from Bella Union‘s boss Simon Raymonde on his show for Amazing Radio.
