2013 was something of an anniversary for notoriously gloomy indie rockers Tindersticks, turning 21 years old and releasing their Across Six Leap Years album. Doesn’t look like they’ve any intention of stopping there though, announcing a new album, their tenth.
Titled The Waiting Room and out on Jamuary 22nd next year via City Slang, the album features guest appearances from Savages Jehnny Beth and the late Lhasa De Sala, and is also a film project, with a host of directors providing visuals for each of the tracks.
This first of these comes in the shape of ‘We Are Dreamers’. Opening with a solitary saxophone, it seeds into a typically dark, almost unnerving slice of indie rock, gradually growing with layers of organ and guitars to an aching climax.
Brazilian director Gabriel Sanna handles the visuals, as these huge juggernauts lol over a desolate, grey landscape.
