“An ode to the best friend who eased the existential crisis of teenhood“ – All Things Go
“Evoke[s] all that is sensual about contemporary popular music and will make you tingle with excitement” – DoTheBay
Today, Tino Drima premiered “You Are My Friend” via All Things Go. Their split EP with Spooky Mansion ‘A Space God Appears’ is set to come out December 13th, via Dingo Vinyl.
Tino Drima sings a Hero’s Tale of then, now, and what will be. Crooning hell harmonies over charmed, ripping beats, Tino channels music that has always existed. Think the inter-dimensional radio in Old Man Cooper’s house that portals classics from a better world in between government warnings of peace and goodwill. Tino Drima mixes influences from Roy Orbison, Elvis, and Can to make a unique vintage sound. They released a debut EP earlier this year which DoTheBaysaid to “evoke all that is sensual about contemporary popular music and will make you tingle with excitement.”
Careening through the universe, pistols blazing, neutron drive pulsing, Spooky Mansion spreads Surf Soul Rock n Roll through their banditry, piracy, and vileness. In secret they honed their skills in San Francisco, forging powerful electron guitars and solar basses. They were featured on their local NPR, played Noise Pop this past summer, and slowly conquered the local venues and looted their ore deposits until their infamy became too great. Last seen hiding in the asteroid fields of the Golrage Nebula, it is said that Spooky is designing the most powerful single ever recorded.
Both bands will take the stage for their release show at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, on December 16th.
