Listen to "Ta Ta Dana" MP3
Seattle, Washington based quartet Tomten are often described as "Baroque Pop" for their retro organ driven sound. Formed in 2010 by four Cornish College of the Arts students and started performing regularly in Seattle that summer, they soon recorded their eponymous debut LP in late 2010. Soon after Tomten won First Place in the EMP/SFM's Sound Off! Competition which secured them a slot at Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival 2011.
After spending the summer of 2011 preparing and recording new material for their 2nd LP "Wednesday's Children" they traveled to Iceland in August to perform at Menningarnot in Reykjavik. The "Ta Ta Dana" EP will be released on April 10, 2012 on Flat Field Records with the full length due in the summer.
