Comprised of New Zealand-born Tamaryn, who provides soft girlish vocals, and guitarist Rex John Shelverton, who does the instrumentation and plays the role of producer, Tamaryn (the band) revel in the lush atmospherics of shoegaze and dream pop.
After meeting in New York in the early 2000s, Shelverton and Tamaryn relocated to San Francisco. They released two 7” records (Weather War and Mild Confusion/Light Shadows) and the Led Astray Washed Ashore EP before starting work on their debut album, The Waves, released in the autumn of 2010 on Mexican Summer. For 2012's Tender New Signs, Tamaryn and Shelverton married The Waves' soft atmospheres with more structured songwriting. ~ Jason Lymangrover, Rovi
