Radar: Ornament Tournaments


In an age where money all too often trumps music, finding a young group who put out a record purely for the excitement of it all, and allow a ‘name-your-price’ download, is pretty rare. But Ornament Tournaments aren’t a band to follow the traditional path of things.

The three childhood friends managed to put out last year’s Tacheles despite the hundreds of miles separating them due to university and travels. This brilliant seven-track EP encapsulates the live energy that the band provide at all-too infrequent gigs that they’re able to play. With influences coming from as far and wide as Minus the Bear, Reuben, and Bloc Party, the trio provide a unique fusion of multi-layered vocals, jangly guitars, and alt-rock drops.

Their most recent activity – a midnight woodland recording session in the dead of night this January – show the powerful creative potential in this band who, if life and university stop getting in the way for long enough for a decent string of tour dates, promise great things. Watch this space.
