Tamu Massif is a vehicle for the imagination of Dave Dixon, a songwriter with remarkable patience.
Building up each song over a period of months or even years, Tamu Massif finally released its debut EP 'Alba' back in 2015.
A spectacular introduction, it demonstrated the sheer talent on display, in its emotional punch and its musical diversity.
"I don't have a set process,” explains Dixon. “Quite often I start with a riff on the piano or guitar and build up sections layering stuff. A lot of the sounds are sampled vocals and guitar lines which I've played around with – stretched and loaded with effects, etc.”
New EP 'Bala' is incoming, with Clash able to share the video for addictive new cut 'Rare Candy'.
The visuals are drawn from years of travel, featuring everything from New Year in Naples to scenes from Dixon's home in Weston-super-Mare.
Tune in now.
