Discovery: Tango in the Attic

This recently came across my desk and I like their sound. I thought you might as well.

Press Release:
“Mona Lisa Overdrive” is Tango in the Attic’s second single from their forthcoming album “Sellotape” (released May 28th). The single will be released along with an accompanying video.

Like previous single “Pawprints”, it’s noisier than anything from the first album using roomy reverbs and garage guitars. Whilst it is deliberately understated, Mona Lisa Overdrive maintains the pop qualities of previous endeavors opting for simplicity in song structure.

The accompanying video documents the band’s recent tour of America during which they played a large number of shows at SXSW. The video is a similarly understated affair with the band maintaining a degree of anonymity for a large part of the song.

The bands previous single “Pawprints” was released in March this year whilst a live version of the track “Swimming Pool” was also recently released as a taster of what to expect from Sellotape. Both videos were picked up on NME, MUZU, Clash, Artrocker and “Swimming pool” made Spinner’s Video of the Day.

Jordan Craig (vocals / guitar), Jonathan McFarlane (guitar), James Crook (bass) and Paul Johnson (drums), all from Glenrothes, formed Tango in the Attic in 2008. After the release of Bank Place Locomotive Society (2010), the band took time out to pursue other projects, coming back together in October 2011 to record their second album. Their debut received brilliant support from the likes of NYLON magazine, Artrocker, The Line of Best Fit and The Skinny with their singles receiving plays on BBC 6Music, Absolute Radio and BBC Radio 1 Scotland.
