Tamaryn’s latest album Cranekiss will be out on August 28 on the Mexican Summer label.
The New Zealand born vocalist’s last album Tender New Signs was released back in 2012. She’s back with fresh soundscapes along with a new producer, Jorge Elbrecht and a new bandmate, Shaun Durkan.
According to an interview with Billboard, Tamaryn says the title of the album was based on an old demo. “It was actually written by my co-writer Shaun Durkan,” she said. “The visual that I attached to it when I wrote the lyrics to the song (and then it ended up becoming the title of the album) was getting hit by love or getting taken over by a kiss. I imagine being craned into the sky by somebody.”
The video for the title track is now up on YouTube. Directed by Brian DeGraw, it mixes grainy VHS effects with ripple of water. The song itself is reminiscent of the Cocteau Twins.
