Tinfoil is a four piece original Rock band from the Toledo, Ohio area. The quartet includes Dave Harms (guitar and vocals), Cher Bibler (rhythm guitar and vocals), Bill Nichols (drums) and Krystal Harms (bass). Since releasing their self-titled debut EP in 1993, the prolific rockers have produced 13 full length albums as well as a string of singles. However, the tenured band is not interested in reliving history. “We’ve just been trying to look ahead,” Bibler says.
With the future in mind, Tinfoil recently released “New Orleans,” the first single and title track from their brand new 15 song album. The group’s list of influences is long and varied, with each member bringing a different flavor to their sound. We can hear that mix in the new single, from Bill and Dave’s penchant for Classic Rock to Cher’s love of punk pioneers X and Patti Smith, to Krystal’s long list of Goth heroes.
“New Orleans” rides on a laid-back downtempo Blues/Rock drum and bass groove. An acoustic guitar strums the rhythm as whammy-bar electric chords set the scene for the track’s dark voodoo backdrop. Harms enters the mix, singing a swampy parable of caution inspired by a real-life visit to the Crescent City of the title. As the story goes, the Yankee guitar player found his way into a locals-only New Orleans bar and learned a hard lesson about the secrets around each corner in the mysterious city. As the song progresses the tale becomes intertwined with the legend of voodoo priestess Julia Brown, hurricane Katrina and a smoking Acid Rock guitar solo.
