Portland-based band TENTS have announced their new LP Medicine and have shared the title track. The LP will be out 10/11 on Badman Recording Co.TENTS is a surprising departure from Northwest based indie pop. The band, based in Portland Oregon, serves up neighborhood nostalgia with a slant. Melancholy is a theme, both musically  and lyrically, but the music doesn’t dwell on pain. Thick harmonies and bouncy grooves float the listener towards jubilance.

TENTS is a family band. Vocalists Amy and Brian are partners and parents. They are joined by Guitarist/producer Chris Hall, and most recently by Joe Greenetz (Sherwood) on drums and Matt Taylor (Motion City Soundtrack) on bass.Active in Portland and up and down the west coast, TENTS has shared the stage with the likes of Ten Fe, Nyles Lannon (Film School), Frankie Simone, and Kelli Schaefer. Their debut LP, Deer Keeps Pace, came out on May of 2018 via Badman Recording Co. The band has since built a solid and eager fanbase, with 175k streams and a strong presence on Instagram.

Also an audiovisual experiment, many of their songs are written like a soundtrack to videos they make. They produce a Youtube series called “Making Medicine” in which they document said experiments.Their new album, Medicine, will be released through Badman Recording Co. (STRFKR, Mark Kozelek, The Builders and the Butchers) on October, 11, 2019.  The band will be supporting it with several videos and West Coast tour dates in fall.

Magic spouts effortlessly through this music. It feels like a bunch of kids laughing and shouting from the recesses of a playground, inviting the cynics and the skeptics and the wallflowers to join the fun.
