Aided an abetted by Emily Bennett, from Betty and the Werewolves, Tender Trap recorded their new album at Bark studios with Brian O’Shaunghessy – responsible for the most recent Comet Gain LP.
Magnetic Fields have invited the band on tour – perhaps a sign of the devotion Fletcher holds amongst the indie vanguard. Set to hook up for a short burst of shows, Tender Trap will play dates in Brighton, London and Manchester.
Elsewhere, Amelia Fletcher’s work with Talulah Gosh is set to be collated later this year. Damaged Goods are working on a compilation, which will bring together the band’s slim but influential back catalogue.
Tender Trap will play the following shows:
