“A mystically groovy sound. A tribal sense of belonging.” — City Pages (Minneapolis)
The classically trained, five-piece Minneapolis-based band Tabah recently made its way into the studios of hometown Minnesota Public Radio station, 89.3 The Current to perform a four-song session of songs from the band’s just-released debut album Symmetry Somewhere. The local buzz for Tabah is building, following a sold-out record release show and subsequent tour.
Now back home, Tabah will play several shows in town starting this evening (see dates above.) Tabah has also just issued the first music video for a song off of Symmetry Somewhere. The cinematic clip for “Lucid State” is streaming now via She Shreds, the world’s only print publication dedicated to women guitarists and bassists, and includes an interview with Tabah front woman, Cecelia Erholtz. Erholtz is often called out in the local Minneapolis press. The word “Earthy” gets used a lot, and while not inaccurate, it leans into a place that is actually smaller than what is required to describe her.
In its preview of Tabah’s recent sold-out record release show at St. Paul’s Turf Club, Minneapolis daily paper the Star-Tribune accurately noted that “Erholtz’s husky vocals are a little bit PJ Harvey and Stevie Nicks.” Pinging two of the universe’s biggest voices is high praise, to say the least. As a matter of fact, Erholtz’s “Earthy” vocals communicate something more universal than what could be attributed to any one planet. They could be “Jupitery,” or “Saturny,” and even Heavenly on Symmetry Somewhere.
Recorded live to tape, with minimal overdubs, the band worked tirelessly during the day at Welcome To 1979 Studios in Nashville, and then retired to a cattle ranch just outside of town where they would meet at a gazebo near a frog pond. That place soon became a temple where the five would find themselves reflecting, releasing, and crafting closely amongst relaxed moonlight, soft mornings and Southern thunderstorms.
The debut album Symmetry Somewhere by Tabah is out now. Members of Tabah are available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
