The Tamborines - Sally O'Gannon

The Tamborines
Sally O’Gannon

If the Dandy Warhols didn’t exist, I’d be shouting from the rooftops about The Tamborines. However, The Dandy Warhols do exist, so this falls directly into the homage / rip-off category.

To be kinder, it’s a song that The Dandy Warhols would be proud of, strutting and grooving along like a pair of stolen maracas. It’s got the chugging guitars, the synth bit on the chorus and the lazy vocal.

The second track, ‘Be Around’, is a more mellow affair, reminiscent of early 90s shoe-gazers Ride, or maybe 18 Wheeler, and again is a very good distillation of its influences.

Floaty and spaced out… and great.
