The Tarantulips

One Album

Formed in the summer of 2018, Nic met like-minded beach enthusiasts Elisa (bass) and Jon (drums). The Tarantulips are sweat, surf and sound waves.

The Tarantulips are based in Jersey, Channel Islands, fronted by Nic Dinnie (vocals and guitar) who co-formed the South African indie group Desmond and the Tutus. Joined by his friends Elisa Da Silva (bass and vocals) and Jon Caws (drums), the trio create high energy waves of sound. “It’s a blast of fuzzy, raw post-punk-infused indie with a choppy guitar and some crisp drumming, and all delivered at breakneck speed. It’s brashy, trashy, and a real rush.” (Whisperin and Hollerin). If you like The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Smashing Pumpkins, Arcade Fire, Daft Punk, The Broken Social Scene and LCD Soundsystem then you're going to love this.

Time Bomb Gush

Lyrics:

There are cells in my body Addicted to your beat And we act like we don't notice You're staring straight at me We act like we don't notice, you're staring straight at me All my friends say be careful She's what you want not what you need But I won't be your first ruin I'm not that naive I won't be your first ruin, I'm not that naive I can see what's happening Ticking time, time bomb There are cells in our bodies Creating all this heat And we act like we don't notice The sweat beneath our feet We act like we don't notice, the sweat beneath our feet I can see what's happening Ticking time, time bombs I won't be your first ruin, I won't be I can see what's happening Ticking time, time bombs

Lyrics:

Let’s get a Town car, Drive it through Times Square In the middle of summer, Get a room there Put on some make-up, Go out dancing They’ll be playing disco, We can make some friends Nobody’s born there but we all die there x2 On the subway, With all the dreamers And the greedy, Motherflippers Walk the pretty blocks, Collecting coffee cups Promise to watch the shows, Next time we’re down Nobody’s born there but we all die there I left my heart in the park Nobody’s born there but we all die there Everyone’s here but we’re all alone (I lost my heart, empty) (I lost my heart) Come Sunday, Brooklyn to Rockaways Have a drink there, If we can afford it Come back next year, Spend all our savings How much its changed, How much it’s stayed the same Nobody’s born there but we all die there I left my heart in the park Nobody’s born there but we all die there Everyone’s here but we’re all alone (I lost my heart, empty) (Your taste in my mouth, so sweet)

Lyrics:

I use a knife and fork To eat your garden peas Sometimes it doesn’t work And when I cut my tongue It doesn’t bleed It gushes Sometimes we’re home alone You like to feed me marshmallows Our saliva soft and sweet I bit the inside of my cheek And when I break the skin It doesn’t bleed It gushes

Keep Up Gush

Lyrics:

You've got all you need, To go on all night I've got all I need to keep up I like how your hair is just a single color How much you know me is enough Call your ride, tell him not to come You'll be home, When you've had your fun You're wearing slippers, I've got a wetsuit on I need a drink just to keep up Everyone's dancing, Elliot he’s just lazy Make sure your laces are tied up Call your ride, tell him not to come You'll be home, When you've had your fun

Mayonnaise Gush

Lyrics:

Miss may we please come and play You know we've made some friends and we'd really like to stay Miss May we won't complain You know we'll make our beds and pull our hair out of the drains And if it makes it better you can meet my Da He's a standup guy who likes fixing cars And if it makes it better I'll edit my will Sell my guitar to settle the bill Miss may I get you another gin? I've heard it helps when the dream gets a little dim Miss May the pool is this way Make sure you've got a friend if it's the deep end you're jumping in And if it makes it better you can meet my Ma She's a lovely lady who likes painting dogs And if it makes it better I'll polish your crown Change my name to George or Paul or John Miss May it's breakfast all day A hard boiled egg and a cup full of Mayonnaise.
