Tamaryn has shared "Softcore," which is another song from her forthcoming new album, Crane Kiss, which is due out August 28 via Mexican Summer. The song's icy and impressive soundscapes would've provided a nice soundtrack to a 1980s' Los Angeles set noir film that takes place mainly at night in the rain.

For Under the Radar's 13th annual Artist Survey we emailed some of our favorite artists a few questions relating to 2015.

Here are some answers from Tamaryn (aka NYC via New Zealand songwriter Tamaryn Brown). Her latest album, Crane Kiss, was released in 2015 via Mexican Summer. More

In My Room

Nov 06, 2015

Following the sepulchral, reverb-laden 2010 debut The Waves and the doom-shimmer ripples of 2012's neo-shoegaze Tender New Signs, NYC via New Zealand songwriter Tamaryn Brown (who releases music simply under her first name) felt an impulse to change. More

Tamaryn may be one of the quietest bands to traipse through the newly ploughed field of indie rock, but that's only because their unfazed take on shoegaze too often gets passed over. However, if anyone mistook the underrated San Francisco duo (composed of the eponymous singer and instrumentalist/producer Rex John Shelverton) for shy wallflowers, sophomore album Tender New Signs will change that.
