Tamaryn’s Back With A Hazy Power Ballad, “Hands All Over Me”

Her long-awaited third LP, Cranekiss, is out August 28th.

April 28, 2015

"Hands All Over Me" is the sort of hypnotic power ballad that only Tamaryn could dream up. With its crisp, '80s-leaning percussion and little call-and-response echoes, our first taste of the follow-up to 2012's Tender New Signs is definitely a pop song—one that can seamlessly exist in the sorts of pulsing, humidity-steeped sonic spaces that the New York-based shoegaze artist is known for inhabiting. "It was written late in the session," Tamaryn told FADER of the track's inception in an email. "[Co-producer] Jorge Elbrecht came to me with an idea for a sort of freestyle pop song meshed with the sounds we were already experimenting with, and I thought it was brilliant. I think this is going to be a lot of people's favorite track." The album's it's on, Cranekiss, is out August 28th via Mexican Summer; that's the cover art below.
