THE BLACK TAMBOURINES

 

The Black Tambourines make music grounded in the ethos of D.I.Y production and scuzzy, distorted garage-rock, but with ragged grooves and a sun-kissed haze. Their music has been described as “surf-punk that buzzes with urgency” – NME, “blissfully hazy garage-punk”- Clash and “scuzzy rip-roaring indie-rock” – BEAT.


Over the last year The Black Tambourines have performed at Glastonbury, Isle of Wight festival, The Great Escape (unofficially, playing a guerrilla gig from the back of their van) and Manchester’s Psych Fest; they’ve toured Europe and the UK and supported The Jesus and Mary Chain (among many other shows). This summer, the band are booked to play End of the Road and Nozstock – The Hidden Valley festivals.


The Black Tambourines released their eponymous debut on vinyl in Sept 2013, than on CD via new label Easy Action on July 2015. For this year’s Record Store Day they released 7” of No Action (new album track) which sold out immediately. The second album 'Freedom' was released on the label Easy Action.
