Gunning For Tamar Confirm Release Details For Brand New EP & Announce UK Tour Dates

This band have accumulated praise left, right and centre from the likes of John Kennedy and Ian Camfield over at the fantastic XFM, Hew Stephens on the superb Radio 1 as well as the fabulous guys over at BBC6, all for last years works on stand out singles ‘Time Trophies’ and ‘Dark Sky Tourism’.

All credentials to take note of, and now with the dawn of a new year comes new musical efforts from Oxford’s Gunning For Tamar. The band have revealed to fans that they will be releasing their brand new EP, ‘Camera Lucida’, on April 1st courtesy of the tremendous Alcopop Records.

Tamar’s lead guitarist and vocalist explains the albums title thus: “It’s a fascinating and scary subject and there are many experiments surrounding memory manipulation of subjects by showing them photos of things they never did. It ties into other themes that are present in the songs on the EP, like the idea that the mind is easily manipulated by difficult situations, people and is incredibly fragile. This can sometimes lead to uncomfortably dark, very often surreal mindsets.”
