Tenderhooks – All I Have – Audio

This iteration of Tenderhooks relates to the Australian mellow-rock quartet from Melbourne. Despite the many thousands of bands and musicians featured – duplicate naming, surprisingly enough, is rarely a consideration with barely a handful in total even going back to the last decade on the original site – Indie Bands Blog.

For some reason Tenderhooks is out on its own with this being uniquely a triplication – one also Australian (Perth) – the other from England, despite having the same name, each are very different.

Tenderhooks released their début LP, Headcase, towards the end of last month (available on bandcamp). It would be mistakenly and easily possible to dismiss the music as background pedestrian footfall on hitting play. To do so would be to miss a treat as by allowing any of the six tracks to unfurl its first few bars the listener finds themselves completely absorbed in the mystical melting compositions – my pick of which is the third – All I Have.

Tenderhooks – Yolena – Audio

Within the past hour Yolena, from the forthcoming ten track album, has been revealed.

Those of longer stay and memory may be wondering if Tenderhooks have now relocated from Australia – no – this is one of those, surprisingly rare occasions given the number of bands featured since the last decade, they merely share the same band name.

Yolena is a brit-blues soaked track containing a good natured lyric that raises a smile surrounded by a foot-stomping bass that rattles the windows from which spiralling guitars pirouette through the room like a ballet dancer whilst a rolling percussion gives the song an unexpected disco-beat. While the song is a hive of activity, much like a swan paddling underwater, the audience is left with only a graceful progression that rests comfortably on the ears and even more so on the dance-floor.
