Tinariwen Returns on New Label


Some bands have a sound so unique that their being is something else entirely. Their overall sound could make or break any other band.  For Tinariwen starting on a new label is nothing but exciting. After years on Anti the band has reimagined things for the label Wedge. As a moment for the label their next release will be the new album Amatssou by Tinariwen. The lead single “Tenere Den” has a sound that feels like a thousand sounds at once. Stream the song below before preordering your own copy.

The way the song flows offers the band at a specific bandwidth. The tones in the guitar flow like seabirds at the start of a season. The rhythmic notes between the guitars and the vocals create certain tones that you cannot ignore. The backing vocals help the song grow while it expands on its universe. Overall the sound is the band and takes you to a new place at the same time.

The song can be heard above or wherever you stream music. Amatssou is available for preorder here before it drops on May 19. Tinariwen is on tour starting May 27 in Chicago, IL at Old Town until July 29 in Luxey, France at Festival Musicalarue. Their tour is available here.
