...Tanera Heights!

Time to introduce yet another great up-and-coming Scottish band.  This time, it's the turn of Tanera Heights.  With their impressive debut Cannons and Drums EP released today, I asked them a few wee questions.  Here's what they had to say for themselves...

Kowalskiy:  Who are Tanera Heights?
Colin:  We're a three piece originally from Strathpeffer (North of Inverness) and are currently based in Glasgow and Edinburgh.  Myself (Colin) and Alasdair are brothers and have been making music together since we could make noise (loose definition of 'music' for the early years). Tom joined the band to form the current lineup in 2006, although it is only recently we've started to gig regularly.

Kowalskiy:  How would you describe 'your sound'?
Colin:  We combine piano, synths, studio electronics, electric violin, harmonies, guitar and drums with influences such as Pink Floyd, Sigur Ros, King Crimson, Radiohead, David Bowie and the Flaming Lips.

Kowalskiy:  What can we expect from you in 2011?
Colin:  Our first E.P Cannons and Drums is due to be released on February 7th. We’re planning on playing as much as we can get away with between Glasgow and Edinburgh to promote the E.P and may even organize a Scottish tour. We have our eyes on a few festivals (T in the Park, Rockness, Loopallu, Belladrum, Wickerman) but lineups are yet to be announced. All going well we will also start to think about our next release.
