Tomorrows Tulips
Tomorrows Tulips
Squished between Los Angeles and San Diego, Tomorrows Tulips give birth to a sound that is culled from equal parts pop experience and esoteric interests. A comfortable wave from a van window, paying homage to the DIY aesthetics of undergrounds past. Internet whispers mumble "Pavement at the beach," "lackadaisical affair," loser rock and bummer pop. Whether it's worshipping alien lanes or getting called Kurt Cobabies, Brent from Further said "Alex and Ford are keeping your underground slightly outta tune rock safe." Tomorrows Tulips initially formed as a refuge from Alex Knost’s then band Japanese Motors (Vice Records) in 2010. Soon after bedroom recordings blossomed, visual artist Thomas Campbell released Tomorrows Tulips’ debut album “Eternally Teenage” on his then label Galaxia Records. The sophomore album “Experimental Jelly” was released in 2013 on Burger Records, and exhibited a “more diverse” sound than its predecessor due largely to the addition of Ford Archbold on bass guitar and accompanying vocals. “Experimental Jelly” was recorded by Jamie Dutcher (HOLY SHIT, Sam Flax) whom the group met through mutual shows and tours. Tomorrows Tulips’ 3rd LP "WHEN" showcases the group’s evolution through a blend of pop sensibilities with post punk, noise rock and DIY recording techniques—endeavors that demonstrate the band’s interest in experimentation and impromptu deconstruction. “WHEN” also features current PIXIES bass player Paz Lenchantin on distorted violin and feedback on several tracks.
What is Tomorrows Tulips?

What happened to your big brothers indie rock?

Don't worry Alex and Ford are keeping it safe for you...

Born and bred off the southern California coast both these two dudes are keeping the fine tradition of slightly bummed, slightly happy, slightly outta tune and slightly crafty underground rock music alive. They aren't really 90's revivalists, they are happening now!

They know there was a Velvet Underground before there was a Beat Happening and they know it well.

They know there was a Pavement before there was a Weezer and they know it well.

They know bands recorded on 4 tracks before there was garage band and they know it well.

They know the kids from Burger Records and they know them well.

They have a new LP out called "Experimental Jelly" maybe you should get to know it well.
