Manchester art/rock quartet Tindrumm have recently announced the release of a new double A side. The release, produced by independent record label Trinitus Sounds, marks a new wave of progressive music in the city.
Tindrumm consist of Ryan, Pete, Jamie and Mat, who met at university where they all study music. The band have been together since 2015 and, since they began working together, have gone from performing in tiny local venues to headlining the city’s Sacred Trinity Church in April 2016. Their name comes from a book called The Tin Drum by Gunter Grass.
For the double A side, the band have been working with Grammy award-winning mastering engineer Mandy Parnell. The release will contain two songs: ‘This Time Tomorrow’ and ‘Hollowtooth’.
Tom of Trinitus Sounds told Humanity Hallows, “To work with Tindrumm on this double A-side as our first release as a label has been a really wonderful experience, having also collaborated with Lawn House, who mixed & engineered the tracks at IM Studios and Mandy Parnell who has worked with the likes of Bjork & Sigur Ros. Our belief in a real artistic community was the reason for the start of Trinitus Sounds and, with this release, I firmly believe we have laid the right foundations for that.”
