The Tambourine Girls announce the release of their near-eponymous track ‘The Tambourine Girl’, the second single from their forthcoming debut album.
The mythology of the muse is woven through the fabric of pop culture. Twiggy. Marilyn Munroe. Christie Brinkley. And The Tambourine Girl. “She dances and I follow and when I wake up I am empty, so I fill myself up and do it all again.”- Simon Relf, The Tambourine Girls
Relf’s ode to his muse is suitably euphoric, with undertones of self-destruction. ‘The Tambourine Girl’ is a beguiling throwback that wouldn’t be out of place in an underground music hall of eras gone by. Produced by Tim Whitten (Powderfinger, The Go-Betweens) it’s nostalgic, twinged with Americana and psych-rock. ‘The Tambourine Girl’ is designed to soundtrack a covert dance in a dark corner – away from prying eyes.
The track follows on from the success of The Tambourine Girls’ recent single ‘Police’, which racked up over 300k spins on Spotify. The band, created by former Deep Sea Arcade guitarist Simon Relf will release their debut LP later this year.
