Tango in the Attic release video for “Paw Prints”

Posted Thu, 15 Mar 2012


For fans of: The Drums, Two Door Cinema Club, Passion Pit


Scotland’s Tango in the Attic released the free download single Paw Prints this week, taken from their much anticipated second album Sellotape - set for release on Believe Digital on 23rd April 2012.

Paw Prints sees Tango in the Attic's sound progress into much noisier territories than anything on the first record. It's loud, frantic, childishly fun and unconventional.

You can watch the video for the track no on the band's YouTube channel.



Paw Prints is available to stream and download now from the A Badge of Friendship Soundcloud page.



The video for the track "Swimming Pool" was also recently released as a taster of what to expect from Sellotape. The video was picked up on NME, MUZU, Clash, Artrocker and made Spinner's Video of the Day.



Jordan Craig (vocals / guitar), Jonathan McFarlane (guitar), James Crook (bass) and Paul Johnson (drums), all from Glenrothes, formed Tango in the Attic in 2008. After the release of Bank Place Locomotive Society, the band took time out to pursue other projects, coming back together in October 2011 to record their second album. Their debut received brilliant support from the likes of NYLON magazine, Artrocker, The Line of Best Fit and The Skinny with their singles receiving plays on BBC 6Music, Absolute Radio and BBC Radio 1 Scotland.

In March, the boys will tour the USA as well as appearing at SXSW. When they return, they will tour the UK relentlessly from May onwards, eventually heading out to Japan. Alongside the tours, and the single Paw Prints, they plan to release Sellotape on 23rd April 2012 and then another single in May. These boys don't stop!

Paw Prints is available to stream and download now from the A Badge of Friendship Soundcloud page.

Tango in the Attic Return!

Posted Tue, 17 Jan 2012


Tango in the Attic are back!

The Glenthrothes four-piece are set to release their much anticipated second album on April 12th (so fresh from the studio, it’s yet to be named!). The album is the follow-up to their fantastic 2010 debut Bank Place Locomotive Society.

As a little taster, the band have released a video for "Swimming Pool", a track which will appear on the forthcoming album. This is not a music video but a live session the band have recorded against a frosty backdrop, highlighting the warmth, vibrancy of their music.

After the release of their debut, the band took time out to pursue other projects eventually coming back together in October 2011 to record their second album. The boys have honed their sound and this is a more mature answer to the band’s previous quirky indie pop tones.

In March, Tango will tour the USA. When they return, the boys plan to tour the UK relentlessly from May onwards, eventually heading out to Japan. Alongside all the tours, they plan to release the first single from the album in March, the aforementioned second album in April and another single in May. These boys don’t stop!

Tango In The Attic - Sketch by Quentin Blake - 6th Dec 2010!

Posted Mon, 08 Nov 2010

"They're young, they're fresh, they get sweaty on stage and they make an ace noise!"- Vic Galloway, BBC Radio 1

"... impossibly catchy garage pop..."- NYLON Magazine


After setting the festival circuit on fire with their energetic live show and topping Amazon's indie download chart with their debut album, Tango in the Attic are back with their second single, Sketch by Quentin Blake.

If you can't see the Soundcloud waveform below, you can listen to a stream of "Sketch By Quentin Blake" HERE.




Tango in the Attic - Sketch By Quentin Blake (single) by abadgeoffriendship

Exploding onto the scene in 2009, this five-piece band from Glenrothes have steadily cemented their reputation as one of Scotland's most captivating live and recorded acts, with a fun tropical sound fused with melodic guitars and vocals.

The ethereal tour de force of title track, Sketch by Quentin Blake, is dripping with African guitar, and the band's love affair with reverb is alive and well in the song's production.

The single's b-side, "King's Arms", sees the lads turn their back on the usual punchy, two-minute pop nugget template, with a six and a half minute minimalist descent into discord and distortion that put them on par with international contemporaries such as Of Montreal or The Walkmen. The contrast between these two songs further proves that Tango in the Attic are more than capable of creating something truly diverse and eclectic.

New Tango in the Attic Album Coming Soon!

Posted Mon, 24 May 2010


Scotland’s answer to Vampire Weekend, without the smugness that the New Yorkers seem to have acquired of late…” – No. 35 in Artrocker’s Top 100 Records of the Year (2009)

Scottish five-piece, Tango in the Attic, have been causing mini waves of joy. The boys’ live shows have gained them quite a stellar reputation in recent times. Summer 2009 saw the lads play to a crammed tent full of bouncing festival goers at T In The Park and they’ll be back again for this year’s TITP stint.

In a short space of time, Tango have established themselves as one of the freshest, most exciting bands in Scotland, especially with their most recent release, single Seven Second Stare. The band managed to beat the likes of bands such as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, claiming a solid no. 35 spot in Artrocker.com’s Records of the Year for 2009.

…slightly angular, almost chatty indie which rolls along on cutely raw basslines before exploding into an amiable chorus...” – Seven Second Stare single review, Drowned in Sound

Their influences are plucked from the best pop, avant-garde and east coast garage music from the last forty-years. The boys cite Paul Simon as one of their song-writing heroes along with avant-indie pioneers The Velvet Underground. Their debut album Bank Place Locomotive Society conveys the band’s sense of tongue-in-cheek fun and melodic sensibilities, which make the perfect soundtrack to the summer.
