Dinked LP

South-London-based 6-piece Tapir! present their debut album, 'The Pilgrim, Their God and the King of My Decrepit
The album follows a three-act structure – released by Heavenly Recordings as three four-track EPs – telling the story of a
solitary traveller, an ambiguous red creature known as The Pilgrim, on a journey across a mythical landscape of eerie forests,
stormy seas and unholy mountains populated by beasts, injured birds and idealised eidolons. A fantastical offbeat fable
carried along by Gray’s crisp, heartfelt vocals and the band’s instinctive, idiosyncratic melodies, the project at times feels like
the musical equivalent of the paintings of Henry Darger, Henri Rousseau or Philip Guston.
