Through the magic of social media, Tall Tales crossed our radar quite some time after their debut EP of last winter. Enjoy this free track from the band and check in to chat with them online.
From their bio:
Based in East London, Tall Tales are a neo folk rock band formed in early 2012 made up of Guitarist and Lead Singer Oliver Gamblin, Guitarist Dario Rodriguez, Bassist Dave Horner and Drummer Matthias Fuchez.
The band finished work on their first EP, entitled “Tall Tales EP” in February of 2013.
On the back of this first release, with 400 copies being initially produced the band played their very first festival ‘Leefest’ from which they were shortlisted after using their newly recorded material to apply for a number of UK festivals, of which this was their sole success.
Despite being the only festival the band would play all summer, it nevertheless allowed the band to appear on multiple platforms showcasing themselves as part of the unsigned talent that this independent festival had to offer and thus contributed greatly to their slowly increasing expansion in the public eye.
On August 25 2013 Tall Tales signed with Kando Management
“Bombay Bicycle Club LPs and Devendra Banhart resonate here but TTs have a sweet neo folk sway all their own” – The Dublin Castle
“Uptempo smartly written indie folk that trods a similar path to Conor Oberst’s Bright Eyes albums.” – The Gladstone
“…London’s Tall Tales take the popier edge of Bombay Bicycle Club, with nods towards Edward Sharpe and Devendra Banhart. The result is a jouous collection of folk pop songs…” – Bohemocracy
“Tall Tales, whos sincerity is like a warm lo-fi picnic, a sundappled retrospective jangle of tambourines and winks at flamenco. Think Elliot Smith’s melodies sprinkled on Little Joy’s off kilter pop.” – The Workshop, Old Street
