CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Drowned in Sound

What is most striking about Tender New Signs though is that Tamaryn have placed their distinctive mark across the nine individual pieces that make up the album, in particular the seductive tones associated with Tamaryn's vocal.

75
Pitchfork

Tender New Signs makes the listener work a little harder within Tamaryn's framework, but it rewards as much, if not more, than the walls of noise threatening to hem them in just a few years ago.

74
Beats Per Minute

In its almost purposeful lack of specificity, the album draws the listener in further than would be expected, and, by turning our expectations against us, causes a slight disorientation as to the intent of these songs. 

70
Consequence of Sound

Tamaryn hone in and put their stamp on the template outlined on their first LP, rather than tinker with something that never needing fixing.

65
Under The Radar

It builds on the band's irreverent pop sensibilities with bolder vocals and a more textured rhythm section.

60
NME

Like their 2010 debut 'The Waves', it's cinematic, dramatic, and has vocals so indistinct that Tamaryn (the singer whose band this is) could just be coo-ing "turn up the smoke machine" over and over again.
