A majestic melancholy suffuses Tamino’s 2018 debut album, Amir. The 21-year-old Belgian-Egyptian inherits the sonic DNA of a grand lot: Jeff Buckley, Thom Yorke, Matt Bellamy, Leonard Cohen. Tamino's voice moves between gravelly purr and rich croon, his songs burning with candlelit intensity and deliberately unpolished naivety. He calls it ‘sadness with a straight back’. Expect a patina of gothic opulence to fall over the Brecon Beacons this summer.
