Biography

There are 2 acts plying their trades under the name Tantrums:

[1] Tantrums are four boys and one girl from Birmingham, UK, who love guitar pedals, strange time signatures and generally just playing music. They released their first EP, ‘Champloo’, on Bigger Than Barry Records in the summer of 2010.

[2] Colourful triptychs of melancholy melodies collide with frosty drum machine ticks and rainbows of atmospherics layered upon each other. The imploding sound cleverly dubbed “midi-evil disco” is the creation of Melbourne’s TANTRUMS; Jade McInally (vocals/guitar/keys) and Sarah Phelan (guitar/keys/production/programming).

Taking the moodiness and bleak aura of Joy Division, extracting the relative revelations of PiL, and the subtleties of entirely their own doing, they have stumbled upon the makeup of a greatly unique and intriguing band. Like abstract symphonies soundtracking an art school thriller film instilled with the tribal percussion of Telepathe and the airy eeriness of The Virgin Suicides soundtrack, the output of this relatively new band has been documented some, and they’re currently recording some more. Keep your eyes and ears open for a 2010 release on Exo Records.
