More: tinycastles likes to sometimes set their stage with soft objects like Winnie the Pooh-themed teddy bears to create an intimate atmosphere.
Equally referencing post-rock, classical and ambient music, tinycastles eschews structured forms in favour of erratic build-ups propelled by intimate loops. Their sprawling sound weaves together shimmery guitars, synths and lush vocals, coalescing into a symphony of delicate drone musings.
