Gunning For Tamar – Dark Sky Tourism

Gunning For Tamar are a four piece band from Oxford who make fantastic indie driven music with little regard for time signatures.

Gunning For Tamar have had a busy summer of festivals (you can read my reaction to seeing them at 2000 Trees here) and that hectic touring schedule looks set to continue into the autumn with September filling up with many a tour date including a headline show at London’s Old Blue Last on the 16th and a support slot with Freeze The Atlantic the day before at Brighton’s Pav Tav.

Dark Sky Tourism is the latest release from Gunning For Tamar and you can get it for free, from today.  Dark Sky Tourism is an intense indie romp with moments of delicate reflection and brutal crushing breakdowns. The vocals ride high over the bed of crashing drums, waves of jittering guitar and rock-steady basslines.  It’s laden with hooks that are melodic as they are mental as Gunning For Tamar force Dark Sky Tourism through a series of complex and shifting movements that define it’s twisted and powerful sound. Dark Sky Tourism is an excellent song that flaunts the band’s brilliance and highlights their growth as a band. You should absolutely download it now and treasure it forever.
