TENTS - Deer Keeps Pace CD
Badman is very happy to announce the arrival of a new member to the family: TENTS is a Portland based comfort-pop quartet currently touring in support of their forthcoming full-length Deer Keeps Pace.
Magic spouts effortlessly through this music. It feels like a bunch of kids laughing and shouting from the recesses of a playground, inviting the cynics and the skeptics and the wallflowers to join the fun.
The title track from their debut LP Deer Keeps Pace depicts a wild animal playfully running in stride with an old station wagon. The deer is a commentary on the constant threads in life. The ideas, feelings, and moments that stick with us and carry us through.
TENTS built this record piece by piece as a crew in their Back Yard studio. More often than not, their songs are written live during stretches of deep studio time, improvising and responding intuitively to one another.
Lead track "Backyards" has already received commercial airplay on Portland, OR's KINK FM radio station. KINK named TENTS "Artist of the Week."
Early press for Deer Keeps Pace:
"[Amy's] background harmonies seem to echo a response to lead swooner Brian Hall’s optimistic, high visions of warmth and love unhindered. His own nonchalant, coffee sipping swagger carries a subtly-smooth country rhythm that gently layers with an underlying sense of melancholic fuzz." - All Things Go
