Since Tandem Felix re-emerged in 2017 with ’Were You There (When They Crucified The Birthday Boy)?’ – nominated for the Choice Music Prize Song of the Year – the band opened for Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks in Dublin’s Vicar Street, joined Saint Sister on their Irish tour and put the finishing touches on long-awaited debut album, Rom-Com.
The album was recorded in the now-defunct Lamplight Studios and mixed in The Snug at Sonic Studios by engineer Stephen Dunne.
These are classy, country-tinged songs about affairs of the heart, music for grownups, for divorcees, for people who have lived. Tandem Felix rarely break a sweat, let alone rock out or boogie. Maybe that’s why they called themselves that. They weren’t being ironic – they have found their perfect pace, their perfect mood, and for many of you it will be perfect, too.”
