Bio

Having cut their teeth in the dance music scene, this new project is a departure from the glitchy, electronic sounds we are used to hearing from these two.

The world of The Tapes comes to you through your top-down convertible’s FM radio. Cruising along a pristine coastline on a sun-drenched afternoon, Diet Pepsi in hand, they’re there to take you wherever it is you're going. Lo-fi guitars, retro synths and crunchy drums combined with their technological know-how and unique songwriting all come together as one glorious, wholly holy sound.

Their second single 'You Know It’s Real’ wields a spine of driving staccato bass, a deep blue wash of analogue synths and woozy, romantic falsetto vocals over LCD Sound System beats and heralds the announcement of The Tapes self-titled debut EP, out on Friday 11th November.

"A soothing and melodic track that blends two extremely skilled producers to create a blissful musical mid-point." - StoneyRoads.com

"Well worth the hype." - TheInterns.net

"Serene, spacey... we foresee some great material from the pair" - HillyDilly.com

I think this one's real strong. Great pace and textures, invites you back around for a second listen too.

There's no huge pay off, but it just rolls along very nicely. Well oiled, polished, and worth riding around in a few times.

You know from the start it's gonna be good and sure enough it is. Quality, assured stuff.
