Tamaryn at the Echo – Photos Review

Tamaryn headlined the Echo this past Friday in support of their new album, Tender New SignsLike narcissus and echo, these musical nymphs once again enchanted Los Angeles with their celestial goth, dream pop and psychedelia. With Tamaryn’s new sophomore album Tender New Signs,” they bring forth a mystical mentality. Dripping with 90’s vocals, Tamaryn delivers an album that sounds more like a time capsule. Steamy wind pipes like a mix of Mazzy Star and Courtney Love, whether it was intentional or not the vibe is right on trend — everything is nineties nowadays and what a beautiful compliment to your eight-hole-Doc Martens and flannels over babydoll dresses.

The modern twist of shoe gaze pop makes it just fresh enough to keep you listening through the familiar noise. Stagnant harmonies fill the air and little drops of sugar plum lyrics dance in between your ears. With all the song title trappings of any good manic-pixie-chick, the album track list sounds like the plot to some flowery independent chickflick. At times melancholy and all together self-wallowing, the sound is so perfectly suited for Fall — it even tastes like pumpkin ale. Heavy and bitter on the tongue, its soapy lyrics are ethereal, in fitting contrast to the grunge instrumentals.”
