The Tambourine Girls are a four-piece band from Sydney, Australia. Formed by ex-Deep Sea Arcade guitarist Simon Relf, the band released their debut EP 'The End of Time' in 2014, and followed up with their debut, self-titled LP in 2016. Frontman Simon Relf has toured extensively as a solo act supporting Dustin Tebbutt and Megan Washington, and the band are set to release their second LP in early 2018. "You Don't See Me" is the first single from that second LP. The album is the first ever to be recorded at Golden Retriever Studios in Sydney, run by Simon Berckelman (The Philadelphia Grand Jury) and was engineered by Tim Whitten (The Go Betweens, Lupa J, The Church, Augie March) and mixed by Nick Franklin (Australia, Richard In Your Mind, Matt Corby). "This track is my take on Bob Dylan's 'Talkin World War III Blues.' There's a line in there that could save the world if it were considered more often: "I don't blame him too much though he didn't know me," explains Simon. The song has a driving, robotic rhythm contrasted with sweeping synth-like guitars and a loose, almost conversational vocal melody. The tension is released in the final verse with the bittersweet resolution: "I think you loved me completely in darkness, so that's where I'll be.""You Don't See Me" was released through MGM on 11/17. with an intimate NSW launch gig at Sneaky Possum in Chippendale on 11/23.
