Tamaryn – “Hands All Over Me”

Tamaryn – “Hands All Over Me”

The New Zealand-born singer-songwriter Tamaryn has already made a couple of albums of head-blown desert-vista dreampop, but Cranekiss, her forthcoming LP, promises to be a sharp left turn. Tamaryn made the album after relocating to New York and hooking up with a pair of disparate collaborators. One of the co-writers is Shaun Durkan, who leads the muscular Bay Area psych-rock band Weekend. And the co-producer is Jorge Elbrecht, a chiffon-pop mastermind who’s worked with Ariel Pink and headed up conceptual projects like Lansing-Dreiden and Violens. We don’t yet know how the whole album will sound, but first single “Hands All Over Me” goes all the way ’80s. It’s a vast, shimmering synthpop song with huge drums and huger hooks. Of the song, Tamaryn says, “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.” It’s a great song, and you can hear it below.
