This is a new series on the Granada blog that features the opening bands. Opening bands can be a pleasant surprise. One day you are watching a band with a couple hundred people and the next thing you know they’re playing the Grammys. MGMT Frightened Rabbit, The Avett Brothers and Matt & Kim have all been opening bands here. So come early! You never know, you could be seeing the next big thing.
“You can almost feel the blurry heat rise from Tamaryn’s sultry brand of atmospheric shoegaze.” — Pitchfork Media
San Francisco band Tamaryn will be opening up for The Raveonettes Monday April 11th. Like The Raveonettes, Tamaryn is a shoegazey duo who carefully balances a reverb-soaked, ambient wall of sound with the lush, icy whisper of singer Tamaryn. It’s a tough balancing act for sure, but Tamaryn pulls it off admirably. Imagine a mix of Mazzy Star and The Jesus & Mary Chain. Or The Horrors with Victoria Legrand from Beach House on vocals.
Tamaryn’s debut album “The Waves” was released last year on Mexican Summer to much hype & buzz. The record is a fitting soundtrack to cruising with the windows rolled down in the California desert. It’s fuzzed out, atmospheric, dreamy, and all at once romantic.
