The D-Tales are a five piece band, the members of which hail from all over Liverpool (Walton, Wavertree, Mossley Hill and Croxteth to be exact) and take inspiration from an eclectic range of genres (including ska, folk, English music hall, psychedelia, metal and indie). Although most of them hadn’t even met a few months ago, they’ve now played their diverse brand of pop music at several gigs in Liverpool and have recorded a self-produced E.P.
From mangoneblog.com's review of our July 2012 headline gig at the Zanzibar, Liverpool:
"The D-Tales, meanwhile, come out rather better at not acknowledging limits. I can’t say I’ve ever considered a bouzouki in a pop band before, but shit, they pull it off. They’ve got a pile of satisfying pop songs with a nice, twisted jazz feel – honky-tonk keyboards, bright, sparky guitars and splashy cymbals – but never sound dated. They’re lively, but not theatrical. Poppy, but not irritating. Upbeat, but not simple-minded. Their complex vocal melodies flit over and under a twee, offbeat, sunshine-y backdrop that calls up everything from later-Kinks to The La’s. With a new self-titled EP out, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to see them over the next few months. Do yourself a favour and take it."
