Music: an expression of humanity, escape, a soundtrack to life, deep passion….
Tiny Engines is excited to welcome Omaha, NE’s See Through Dresses to the label roster. Fresh off recent tour dates with Cursive and Beach Slang the band recorded six new songs that will make up their Tiny Engines debut. The EP will be released in the Fall of 2015. The band leaves next week for a month long European tour and have one local show with Matt Pond PA beforehand. Full dates listed below.
The band’s 2013 Self-Titled LP is available for streaming/download on Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify.
Principal songwriters Mathew Carroll and Sara Bertuldo, along with drummer Nate Van Fleet and bassist Alex Kirts, have crafted a catalogue of songs indebted to classic post-punk and new wave artists of the 80’s, but their sonic footprint more closely resembles the textural treatments of 90’s dream-pop and shoegaze. The arrangements often build as though to erupt, only to implode. There are moments when Bertuldo and Carroll sound noxious and distant, their voices doused in reverb, their guitars droning and pulsing. When the clouds look dark, See Through Dresses offer flashes of pure pop sunshine to punctuate those moments of isolation and distance.
