Sounds: The Tambourine Girls // Jeanine

Ambitious arrangements and layered sounds mark a departure from beloved ’70s influences and an embrace of uncharted possibilities unique to the band.

Sydney band The Tambourine Girls are back at it with their new single Jeanine.

Released last Friday, the track is pure, relatively simple, and bittersweet. It feels like a new take on those 1950 doowop tracks on the Ed Sullivan Show—I can just picture girls in the background with a bouffant hairstyle, swaying from left to right and snapping alongside.

Plus, there is a Shakespeare reference in the track.

Their highly anticipated second album Waiting for Pleasure (aren’t we all?) will be released worldwide on Friday, March 23rd.

The album finds songwriter Simon Relf dealing with the idea of the muse, and questioning his place in the world: How did I get here? Where is here? Where will I go from here?

Cue Talking Heads “Once in a Lifetime.”

While you wait for the big release, listen to the track “Jeanine” here:
