*Hey Kenny, this is Russ from Tanith. It’ll be my pleasure to answer your questions. Thanks for the interest, and of course for the glowing review you gave our debut LP!
How did you guys form? I see you have an interesting line up with members from each side of the Atlantic?
The official birth of the band was October 2017, about a month before we recorded the two songs for the 7” single. But for maybe a year leading up to that, Cindy and I were playing in a band around the north of England (we’ve been in a trans-Atlantic relationship for 5 years). Anyway, it was really just a bunch of covers for kicks while she was visiting me but we really did enjoy playing & singing together. In turn I was spending an increasing amount of time visiting her in New York so it seemed a no-brainer to try and put together some kind of outfit so we could do the same while I was in town. One of my best friends in Brooklyn over the last five years has been Charlie Newton. On several occasions we’ve sat up all night with guitars in hand and beer on the coffee table. He was definitely part of our plan for the New York band. To be honest, the intention was no more than to play the same cover set but as it turned out, the clubs all have a strict ‘no covers’ policy so out of necessity we wrote some songs and pretty quickly realised we were onto something. By that time we’d already persuaded Keith (Robinson) to join us and once we’d done that, it just blossomed from there.Continue reading Silence Is The Enemy Interview Tanith
