You only get once chance to make a debut album, so Tabloids have taken their time in creating “All The Things That You’ve Become”, with producing duo Lee Smith and Jamie Lockhart (The Cribs, Pulled Apart By Horses). Fans who are familiar with Tabloids’ signature sound won’t be disappointed to hear that nods to The Cure and Interpol are all present and correct throughout the record, not least on lead track “Pedestal”, which is accompanied by a video using cuts of abstract archive film footage, to fit perfectly with the pensive and melancholy lyrics for which Tabloids are renowned. Other album tracks such as “Vessels” and “Cannibals” have the nifty rhythms and powerful vocals that Leeds-based Tabloids are known for, whilst “Fatal” and “Eruptions” effectively couple driving basslines and jangly guitar riffs in a Joy Division-meets-Smiths kind of way.
Not long after their formation in late 2013, Tabloids rapidly established their live act performing at venues ranging from Reading and Leeds festival, to late night parties in deepest, darkest Yorkshire. The quartet haspreviously opened the stage for fellow alt-rock acts such as PINS, Fufanu and Desperate Journalist. On 30th June2017, Tabloids performed“All The Things That You’ve Become” in itsentirety to a lively audience, when the band hosted an album launch party at Leeds’ coolestcafé/bar, Hyde Park Book Club.Special guests The Sunshine Underground provided a DJ set to conclude the evening.Tabloids released their first music in the form of the EP “Obsessions” in September 2014, which was followed by the single “Grave” in June 2015. Both the single and tracks from the EP made regular appearances on local BBC Introducing radio shows, as well as featuring on the playlists of Radio One and 6 Music.
