“It was a Thursday when I lost you. You left me and said goodbye. I never forgave you for that. But I must.” Tin Chapel’s düsseldorf is a pretty song that just melts the snow off the pavement. The appropriate Holiday feel is very much evident, without being over bearing. That wasn’t intended, but sure does make us look for love in different places.
This is a recording project from 2013 between Dan Rowley and Nick Sharrat. The Nanateas and The Penny Dreadfuls drummer Angela Lazenby became involved, as they’d decided the band needed an additional flavor texture.
It’s been a labor of love, to our eyes, and surely feels great.
Tin Chapels self titled album was released in February 2015.
“The songs are full of melodies and harmonies and draw influence from Aimee Mann, Jacqui Abbott and Paul Heaton, Buffalo Tom, The Flaming Lips.”
We think ‘düsseldorf’ is unassumingly describes the onion layers, we cover ourselves with, during our lifetime. The ‘peeling’ of that outer skin, surely is the hard part, but necessary in getting to know our future lover.
It’s a mutual pact – solid, but demure.
Much nurturing is always warranted.
Fab song, to be sure.
The gang in Tin Chapel reps themselves, and two songs (düsseldorf & wait for snow) sales are being donated to YMCA.
