Tomorrows Tulips’ Alex Knost started The Japanese Motors with his friend Nolan when he was 17, signed to Vice Records, and toured the world with bands like Modest Mouse, The Growlers, White Lies, and others. Eventually, Knost wrote some songs and started a band with his girlfriend Christina Keyes , which ultimately became Tomorrows Tulips. The songs were simple. Sparse. Immediate. Fucked up. But… catchy, with a simple honesty. Between the quirky instrumental interludes, the hypnotic drug born soundscapes, and the Knost’s wide range vocal stunt work, Tomorrows Tulips have created an album that, quite simply, will get stuck in your head for weeks.Their debut full length album Eternally Teenage (produced by Mike McHugh — Vivian Girls, The Black Lips, Harlem, etc.) finally out this week via Galaxia Records on cd, vinyl, and digital download. With the band planning a more extensive tour this September, they’ve already been making the press rounds in anticipation of the album release, hitting the OC Weekly for a Q&A, and IMPOSE Magazine, where Knost details his current Top 5 in a Selector feature. Eternally Teenage is an addictive offering of crisply, blissful doo wop with shades of garage, drones, and crooning that complete the picture. Stay tuned for those September dates!
