Tall Poppies match neat, melodic indie pop with darker, creative notions. Australian twins Susan and Catherine spin tales of life from both sides of the planet alongside Diarmuid pulling at heart strings on violin and Doug Fink - previously the drummer in Noah and the Whale, injecting the energy on drums.
The band bear similarities to Kate Bush and Camera Obscura, with influences including the likes of The Smiths, David Bowie and Belle and Sebastian. Working with London based producer Brian O'Shaughnessy (produced Primal Scream's ‘Screamadellica’) as well as with Paul Tipler (Elastica, Idlewild, The Horrors, Stereolab), the new album 'Let's Go Out' was formed.
This is the first studio album the four piece have recorded together. Named after the title single, 'Let's Go Out' it's all about seizing the day and soaking up the most of a Summer night.
