Amoeba Review

10/15/2012

Tamaryn’s gorgeous Tender New Signs builds upon the faded nighttime glory of 2010’s The Waves by allowing for some more pronounced pop moments within the duo’s sturdy framework of slow-burning shoegaze. On “I’m Gone,” singer Tamaryn floats overhead, offering a kind of growling whisper above guitarist Rex Shelverton’s foamy guitar concoction and a looping bassline and drum machine — simple, but effective. “While You’re Sleeping, I’m Dreaming” has a bit more space, and Tamaryn steps into the stoplight, becoming the torch singer of half-remembered dreams, much as Julee Cruise before her. “Heavenly Bodies,” meanwhile, is the sort of Slowdive-indebted shoegaze heaven fans of the band will be looking for, moving deliberately but massively like a slow-rolling tidal wave. Though they rarely lift the veil of effects-driven sound that shrouds virtually very corner of the album, for those who like their shoegazers of the classic noise-driven variety, Tender New Signs is a simmering delight.
