tindersticks' music is soulful, haunting and ever so sad. With deep languid vocals, luscious strings and classical orchestration, it's no wonder they've been working on movie soundtracks recently. Rather more surprising was their commission to create the music for the Louis Vuitton summer collection in Paris. After a successful tour back in 2008, they discovered a new optimism and direction, which was reflected in the 2010 album Falling Down A Mountain. This year, the band have celebrated the release of their latest album, Across Six Leap Years. If you like your music glum, go see.
