BLARE’s 5 BEST NEW ARTISTS (NOVEMBER 2012)

TAMARYN

NOTES: Amber Bravo and Rex John Shelverton are a San Francisco/New Zealand duo who find comfort in soliciting hazed-out shoegaze pop that for most of this fall, has unexpectedly slipped listeners a new sound to fold into. Much like Beach House’s Bloom, Tamaryn’s latest full-length confides in illuminating a sound that in its own way, mangles heavy alternative from a 1964 Gibson with a decadent swoon that adds layers of bliss to fade and ripple of guitars. Taking lessons from a vinyl issue of Loveless, John Cale works and prescriptive jam sessions, the duo exemplify the varied beauty in shoegaze as it finds its feet again in a world that has a secret desire for more noise.
