New Music – Tapeworms

Tapeworms – IRL

New from French trio Tapeworms, IRL manages to turn alt-pop on its head – there may be a pop undertone but there is certainly no saccharine sentimentality here. Reminiscent of Stereolab / Yo La Tenga, the track feels hypnotic and weightless, an accomplished soundscape of crashing synths and samples.

The band are heading out on a UK tour in a few weeks, catch them at the venues below:
May 2023
4th Manchester – Soup
5th Liverpool – Kazimier Stockroom
6th Rawtenstall – The Whip & Kitten
7th Birmingham – The Sunflower Lounge
8th Bristol – Crofters Rights
9th Hull – Polar Bear Music Room
10th London – Strongroom
13th Chelmsford – Hot Box Live
