Tango in the Attic release 'Sellotape'

Tango in the Attic

'Sellotape' is Tango in the Attic's sophomore album and is set for release on May 28th.

This follow up to 'Bank Place Locomotive Society' will be a primarily digital release with a limited number of physical copies available.

The album represents a progression in sound with the band opting for heavier use of reverb and compression resulting in noisier recordings than anything released previously.

Whilst it makes use of a much wider variety of sound sources, it still retains a lo-fi quality. It is primarily an album of songs made and performed by a band. Lyrically, many of the songs explore the theme of family relationships from a range of perspectives. This theme is reflected in the albums artwork.

As part of the album campaign, the band have released two singles; Mona Lisa Overdrive (May 2012) and Pawprints (March 2012). A live version of the track 'Swimming Pool' was also released in January. These videos were picked up by NME, MUZU, Clash, Artrocker and 'Swimming Pool' was made Spinners Video of the Day and hosted on the official SXSW website.

Jordan Craig (vocals / guitar), Jonathan McFarlane (guitar), James Crook (bass) and Paul Johnson (drums), all from Glenrothes, Scotland, formed Tango in the Attic in 2008. With the release of Bank Place Locomotive Society (2010), the band received brilliant support from the likes of NYLON magazine, Artrocker, The Line of Best Fit and The Skinny with their singles receiving plays on BBC 6Music, Absolute Radio and BBC Radio 1 Scotland. It was also named BBC Radio 1 Scotland's Album of the Month.

Following on from the success of the first record, Tango In The Attic took some time out to pursue other projects, coming back together in October 2011 to write and record Sellotape.

After the release of the album, the band will be touring extensively across Britain, Europe the U.S. and Japan where the album is already released. A follow up E.P. is set for release in Autumn.
