Stream: Tamu Massif reveals experimental song “Iron Lights”

Iron LightsTamu Massif has revealed "Iron Lights", the fourth single from his upcoming Bala EP. It follows previous releases "Holding Back", "Rare Candy" and "OK", which have taken him over a million streams.

"I don't have a set process,” explains the Bristol based artist Tamu Massif, the moniker of singer-songwriter and frontman Dave 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."

Asked about "Iron Lights", he says: "I was stuck on the song and then finished it while visiting friends in Naples over the New Year. I was away from my home studio so had to use the ‘caps-lock keyboard’ on GarageBand, but wanted to get the part down as soon as it came to me."

Bala is due in early 2017, and is the follow-up to 2015’s well-received debut, Alba, which was praised by BBC Radio 1 and 6Music as well as a whole host of other stations and key tastemakers. Previously Tamu Massif has toured in support of The Japanese House, C Duncan and Shakey Graves, among others.
