After a year of bubbling under the radar of Oxford bands about to break through into national consciousness, Gunning For Tamar have earned themselves a well deserved boost going into next year by getting signed to Alcopop! Records. The band have had a commendable 2011 with the release of their fantastic EP Deaf Cow Motel, a national tour with Jumping Ships and exposure on NME TV, it looks like the momentum will take them into the new year as strong and fearsome as ever. Already confirmed as ones to watch in Rocksound 2012 (“There are some pretty famous bands from Oxford, right? This quartet look set to join that list of alumni”), we wish them all the best for the future.
Check out a new song of theirs, called ‘Chocolate Hooves’, underneath:
