Tail Feather - Preview
With a gig at Gullivers on 7th October we preview, and are impressed by, psychedelic popsters Tail Feather who are curently being lauded by a wide cross-section of the music and national press.
With so many bands around it can be difficult to be really, truly distinctive. Tail Feather have managed to do just that with a highly individual sound that is more than a nod to the sixties, they have captured the music of a golden period and made it their own. Their own bio sums them up perfectly:
Undeniably cool and essentially timeless, Tail Feather continue to blaze their own distinct trail in today's music scene with their retro-induced time vessel of euphoric hooks and blissful harmonies.
The song Carnation, available as a free download from the link below, is a prime example of what the band are all about. The music is psychedelic pop, simple songs and that 60’s groove. with tight harmonies that jump right out at you – they may not be as pure as CSN&Y but they marry up with the music perfectly.
The band release their latest EP, Mother Nature, on Friday 7th October and by chance they are playing Gullivers the same evening so it is likely to be a big party.
You can buy the EP and t-shirts here as well as the free download:
