Dark Cloister

Between the dark and the daylight dwell The Black Tulips and their latest three song EP. The sheer expanse of Alexandra's voice hypnotizes and burns as do her lyrics -- intelligent, cryptic, and colourful. The rough energy on this EP is fueled by toxic, angular guitars and bass of Lord Fuxley and Barney.

The Black Tulips recently took a break and were headed to the studio. We are looking forward the next release!

Additionally, a few days ago we received another single, The Dogs' Home/Lie Detector/Under The Skin. Look for more soon. xo, Radiogirl

Dark Glam Rock

Formed in 2005, The Black Tulips are an underground art rock band from Brighton UK. The bandmates are chaotically beautiful: Alexandra (vocal & lyrics), Lord Fuxley (guitar & lyrics), Heidi Heelz (bass), Barny (guitar), and Deadman (drums). The band are known for their frenzied, spasmodic, and phantasmagorical live performances, their colorful and unique attire, and the spider-like movements of lead vocalist, Alexandra.

Alexandra’s elastic vocal range allows her to go from towering to growling in the same measure; what SoundsXP called "vocal gymnastics". Her captivating voice is matched only by her vivid lyrics full of intelligence and wit. The music is inelegant, un-derived, and completely relentless; a wall of sound made of maddened, rancorous, vulgar guitar.

The Black Tulips are playing in Brighton, Hastings, and Camden this month including the Glasswerk industry showcase night on the 27th. They are definitely worth seeing live and we're just not saying that because our heart is stitched to Alexandra's hand. The Black Tulips will captivate yr essence too.
