Oxford based four-piece, Gunning For Tamar formed in early 2010. While they may not have
been around for very long, they've still managed to make a significant dent in the UK's music

The lads have already been featured on XFM and BBC Introducing, played a number of
festivals over the summer (including Guilfest) and have even picked up the much coveted
Breakthrough Track Of The Week over on NME, for "The Organs", taken from their debut split

“Fair play to them for not just playing the usual crap.” – NME

Never ones to shy away from hard work,
Joe Wallis (lead vox/guitar),
Dan Pollard (guitar/keyboards/vox),
D’Arcy King (drums)
and Ben Green (bass)
are now ready to take on 2011, as they release their new EP Deaf Cow Motel.

"German Treasure Island" provides an explosive opening for the EP, with the raw punch of drums
and guitar setting the tone perfectly. Joe's vocals float over the top of this sonic battle, providing a
melodious contrast that builds up into an impressive climax. "Running With Scissors" and "God
Made Colours" showcase the band's technical skills masterfully, with layers of guitar really
coming to the forefront of the tracks.
It's clear that this is a band who are extremely focused, having spent 2010 learning to read each
other like it's second nature, as the sound they have created leaves no room for complacency.
Closing with "Bonfires", the band proves they are capable of creating a dynamic and experimental
sound that offset's the other three tracks on the EP. It's an ambitious track that really pays off,
showing that this four piece are more than comfortable crossing boundaries and defying the
listener's expectations.

Deaf Cow Motel will be released via Walnut Tree Records and will be available to buy on CD
and Download 30th May 2011.

A video for the first track "German Treasure Island" was premiered on and has recieved extensive coverage online aswell as being playlisted on the Scuzz and NME TV music channels.
