SBD and Spinadisc present
INDEPENDENT VENUE WEEK
THURSDAY FEBRUARY 3RD
Freud’s process of therapy was famously labelled the ‘Talking Cure’ - through the act of conversation participants received cathartic relief. ‘Positive Mental Health Music’ (PMHM), the debut album from South East London band Tiña, stems from this idea. Lead singer/songwriter Josh Loftin explains that he used the songs to “work through a mental breakdown”, and that for him “writing is like solving a mystery”.
The 11 track LP provides an honest and intimate portrait into this process of self-examination, covering themes of anxiety, depression, love, sex, isolation, fear and failure. Yet, PMHM is anything but a difficult listen: the tracks are catchy, lively - even danceable at times. Loftin’s cooing vocals, his lyrics poetic yet slightly self-mocking, sit atop a blend of psych-pop keys, drums and guitars, all guided by the shepherding hand of producer Dan Carey.
Positive Mental Health Music is the first ever LP to be released on Carey’s Speedy Wunderground label.
Influenced by the ‘80s records shown to him by his late mother; bloody/bath is the project of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Kailan Price. Garnering plays on BBC Radio 6 Music, top spots on editorial playlists, and praise from the British music zines, bloody/bath are an exciting prospect emerging from the NN scene.
