release date - Trick Mammoth

7th May sees the release of the second installment of 2014's wiaiwya-7777777 7" picture disc singles club - Doll/Candy Darling by Trick Mammoth

Formed in early 2013, Trick Mammoth are a flower cult pop band from Dunedin, New Zealand. Fragile, lucid, but rough around the edges, their songs are sincere and bashfully honest, performed with open arms and a soft indifference. Drawing mostly on film, literature and poetry, their music has a shy pretension buried under layers of simplicity. With comparisons ranging from Black Tambourine to The Carpenters, this youthful trio of Adrian, Millie & Sam luxuriate in melancholy sweetness - gorgeous dream-pop from the margins. Recorded with Tex Houston (the Clean, the 3Ds), Adrian Ng and Millie Lovelock play guitars and sing, Sam Valentine plays drums, they all too turns to play bass.
 The picture disc is illustrated by Daniel Novakovic
