Sven B. Schreiber Tannara's debut album "Trig" already was great, but the follow-up "Strand" is even better. It's bursting with excellently arranged Scottish folk rock, and the three tracks with vocals ("The Next Station Is...", "Spent Lees", "Jutland") are nothing short of overwhelming. The use of lead instruments like violin, harp, and accordion accounts for a rich and compelling sound. Favorite track: Spent Lees.

Sally Greenberg I'm really looking forward to hearing this when it's released! In the meantime though I wanted to thank you for using Bandcamp for its distribution so that I can get high quality (flac) files.

V1 Follow the fragrance, like a moth to the light Who knows what, at this time of night? Won’t you come with me, take a train underground? The next station is, the next station is... V2 Do you remember when, we met at the school My hair was long, I really looked like a fool But you took my hand, for a St. Bernard’s waltz The next station is, the next station is... V3 Your skin was grey, and your hair was thin Didn’t make a fuss, took it on your chin Let’s go out and drink beer for one last time The next station is, the next station is... V4 Take your bits of paper, and wave them high in the sky Everybody’s dressed up, and I’ve even worn a tie Stories passed, and lessons learned The next station is, the next station is... Reprieve Won’t you come with me, take a train underground The next station is, the next station is...

V1 Get me out of this old room, Can’t be a day too soon And we’ll jump on a plane back home to you My hands pick up the phone, but they don’t quite know where to go Because I know there’s nothing here, it’s truly my biggest fear CH1 And I can’t hear you now, I can’t see you now V2 (Wee bit of string part here, in a seperate score) The stories that he told, with the words he made from gold Telling tales about a time long ago All we’re left with are spent lees, and a handful of keys But there’s nothing behind the door, but a man upon the floor CH2 And I can’t hear you now, I can’t see you now And I can’t hear you now, I can’t see you now Bridge The spiders on the wall they crawl, I can’t concentrate We must accept our fate, forget the fabled gate You are leading me astray, I wont beg or pled or prey Cause I can’t ask for you, ask for you to stay The spiders on the wall they crawl, I can’t concentrate We must accept our fate, forget the fabled gate You are leading me astray, I wont beg or plead or prey Cause I can’t ask for you, ask for you to stay Maybe we’ll catch the bandit in your vain, That’s causing you this hellish strain What has he got to gain, he doesn’t care about my pain CH3 And I can’t hear you now, I can’t see you now And I can’t hear you now, I can’t see you now

V1 Where are you going my Billy-O? Where are you going my Billy? I'm joining a ship in Scapa Flow, That's where I'm going my Nancy. Pre CH1 I'm joining Queen Mary Nancy-O, Joining Queen Mary Nancy, She's bristling with guns and ready to go, To sail to glory with Jellicoe, CH1 But where is Queen Mary gone now? And where is the glory gone now? And six thousand sailors, gone now to the bottom at Jutland V2 Where are you going my Rodney-O Where are you going my Rodney I'm joining a ship in Scapa Flow, That's where I'm going my Nancy. Pre CH2 I'm joining Invincible Nancy-O, Joining Invincible Nancy, She's bristling with guns and ready to go, To sail to glory with Jellicoe, CH2 But where is Invincible gone now? And where is the glory gone now? And six thousand sailors, gone now to the bottom at Jutland Pre CH3 I'm joining the Black Prince o Nancy-O, Joining the Black Prince o Nancy She's bristling with guns and ready to go, To sail to glory with Jellicoe, CH3 But where is the Black Prince gone now? And where is the glory gone now? And six thousand sailors, gone now to the bottom at Jutland To the bottom at Jutland

about

Strands represents a significant development for the Tannara, who spent two years writing and recording the album, with help from some very talented people.

The album was produced by Tannara's guitarist Owen Sinclair, and accordionist Joseph Peach, with input and guidance from Lau’s Martin Green. They’ve created a whole world around the band’s music; of found sounds and samples, synthesisers, and guest performances from Mattie Foulds on percussion and Josie Duncan on backing vocals.
