Radiohead‘s Colin Greenwood has joined forces with newcomer Tamino on a track from his debut EP.
The slow-burning track sees Greenwood offering his efforts on bass, underlining the vocals of of 21- year-old Tamino.
The collaboration, which you can listen to below, came about after mutual friends connected Greenwood and Tamino together.
“Indigo Night is the most narrative song I’ve written, although there are still parallels with the main character in the song and me. I wrote it during my time in Amsterdam when I was 18. At the time, I felt like I needed some kind of awakening which maybe reflects in the song”, he explained.
“Colin and I have a few mutual friends. We met a couple of times by pure coincidence. Last summer he came to one of my hometown shows in Antwerp and was very enthusiastic about the music. I felt like we spoke the same musical language when we talked afterwards. When we started recording we noticed we missed some bass guitar parts in a couple of songs. Colin felt like the perfect match because of his melodic playing, whilst keeping an incredible groove.
“I’m honoured to have him playing on my songs.”
Tamino is signed to Communion Records, and he’ll make his debut UK headline show at Electrowerkz on the 15 th May, followed by a slot at Brighton’s Great Escape on the 18 th May, and Citadel on the 15th July.
