Tribes - We Were Children
Ok I know I post a lot of chilled out indie tunes on here and often tunes like this from Tribes 'We Were Children' are lacking. This is one of the better rocker songs I have heard in awhile and I have had to listen to this jam over and over. The guitars are great in this song and it is a full on Rock song in every way.
Released on June 6th through Island Records, the band will be coming straight back at us with their debut album in August which is currently being recorded in Liverpool. Their debut EP ‘We Were Children’ (which has already gained Zane Lowe’s coveted ‘Hottest Record In The World’ status). The EP is only 4 songs long (well 3 minus the Demo version of We Were Children).
Back in October of 2010 NME had Tribes as their Radar Band Of The Week and I found this little bit about how they promote their stuff of interest...
"You want to hunt out the secret band? The hidden Tribes of Camden Town? Then keep your ears to the ground, your eyes to the flyers, your fingers off the ’net.
“We want it to happen word-of-mouth,” says Johnny Lloyd, master conspirator of the new London underground. “You can’t find us on the internet, you have look at posters to know when the gigs are.”
Fuzz-hungry tunesmiths Tribes (also with bassist Jim Cratchley, drummer Miguel Demelo and guitarist Dan White) have built a cult following via, yes, traditional means. Their modus operandi? They hand eight-track demos to friends and spread the word organically."
These guys are really hard to get any kind of a read on and any additional information online. They like to promote their self via word of mouth which makes it hard nowadays with the abundance of information available online. So if you are seeking out information on this up and coming Brit Band - well good luck - looks like you are actually going to have to head to one of their shows and take a listen the old school way.
