Tanlines to Tour This Spring
Mon, 05 Mar 2012 15:01:56
Tanlines – comprised of Eric Emm (vocals, guitar, keyboards) and Jesse Cohen (drums, keyboards, bass) – will release Mixed Emotions via True Panther Sounds on March 20.
Also, Tanlines will also be hitting the road this spring in support of Mixed Emotions.
Anyone well-versed with New York City's diverse music scene for the last few years knows Mixed Emotions is a long time coming and well worth the wait. The album is a testament to the benefits and pitfalls of life's changes, getting older, and being pushed out of one's comfort zone.
Sometimes painful, sometimes transcendent, and ultimately a very precise labor of love, Mixed Emotions simply feels vivid. Songs pulse and linger, filled with percussive textures, bright, warm synths and driving kick drums to juxtapose the album's lyrical melancholia. The record obscures and blurs the lines between synthetic and organic, real and fake, happy and sad. It is the sound of stadium pop in small spaces. And it is one of the most remarkable debut albums you will hear in 2012.
Listen to "Brothers" from Mixed Emotions by going here.
Check out the "Brothers" remix by Eric Emm's very own brother (and former trance producer) Joshua Ryan here.
