Tamu Massif didn’t come around in an instant. Originally writing his songs on guitar, Dave Dixon realised there was more to his music than the usual acoustic-rouse and began experimenting with sounds old and new. Thus, he created Tamu.
Written, recorded and produced at his home in Weston-super-Mare beforebeing mixed in Bristol with (Perfume Genius, YouthLagoon and PJ Harveycollaborator) Ali Chant, his new material is a mirage of thick vocals, reversed guitar and Logic-heavy inspiration.
Often starting songs and finishing them years later, you could say that Dixon has an unconventional writing style. Incorporating psychedelia, lo-fi indie, electronica and bedroom pop, Tamu Massif will get you on your feet as much as he’ll deliver you to a welcome slumber.
