‘On the Run’, the new single from Tempesst, is a very cool slice of indie psych, with singer Toma Banjanin’s voice a deep and sonorous delight and shimmering walls of guitar and harmonies. Louche, studied and melodic: this is a great song imbued with a certain poise and attitude that bursts in to celestial choruses. Short, sharp and very tasty.

The accompanying video was directed by Tempesst drummer Andy Banjanin:

There’s hints of Nick Cave, Tindersticks and a bucketful of style.

While based in London, Tempesst have a strong link to Australia with Australia-born twin brothers Toma on vocals and guitars and Andy Banjanin on drums; the band is rounded out by fellow Australians Kane Reynolds (keys) and Blake Misipeka (bass) with Swiss/American guitarist Eric Weber.

The song comes off Tempesst’s new album, ‘Must Be A Dream’, due out on 30 September through Pony Recordings.
