Their latest single ‘Last Cigarette’ encompasses that prosperous feeling of making lemonade when life is only giving you lemons. It’s about finding that brightness through the dark, and telling yourself ‘life goes on again’. With influences including Grouper, Bon Iver, Frankie Cosmos and Mouldy Peaches, TAPES combines aspects of ambient dream pop and duel rustic folk harmonies, that delivers a raw and genuine performance. Last Cigarette will be released 16th October 2018.
Last Cigarette was recorded directly onto tape in FARE’s bedroom, with initial synths and production edits by rising producer Jay Beale, followed by a final master by Zach O’Loughlin of Zaudio Productions.
