Tiny Cinema – Designs
Label: Brave Or Invincible Records
Release Date: 1st December 2009
Designs is the debut full-length release from the Midlands’ very own Tiny Cinema, a.k.a. Darren Jilks. On the album, the Leicester based singer-songwriter offers up ten tracks of delicate acoustic beauty, including lead single From The River.
Having started life almost three years ago as a side project to bands Have A Go Hero and To Alaska, Tiny Cinema has now become Darren’s sole focus, with Designs marking the huge progression from his two previous EP releases; Good Morning / City Blues and When The Light Comes, to this full-length debut. A record of surprising maturity from the young songwriter: that masterfully balances gentle acoustic rhythms, vocal harmonies and understated melodies to create a delicate, and yet emotionally powerful outing that will no doubt earn deserved comparisons with Bon Iver, Elliot Smith, Bright Eyes and The National. The album also features stunning artwork from talented artist Gavin Weir.
This release marks the first physical release for Birmingham based label Brave Or Invincible Records. Specialising in alternative music, they hope to nurture undiscovered and undeniable talent such as Tiny Cinema.
Designs will be released 1st December on Brave Or Invincible records, followed by the single From The River. Tiny Cinema will be playing the following live dates, with more to follow.
