Their follow up single 'Not Alone' will be released December 2012. “I was extremely proud of Tanadra when we released it, and Bored Very Easily, Release You and Not Alone, and I still love them, but I think I was using mostly one musical technique throughout,” explains frontwoman Tanya Medina. We blew through the songs in a safe way." "They sound amazing then and I believe we're we all ( Arun, Michael, and myself) are today, as far as growth and experience, if we continue our collaborations there is no telling how far we can take this.
TANADRA(Tanya Medina) joined forces with two talented musician friends, Johan de Swart (Drums), and Joseph Scala (Guitar). They supported TANADRA's music at shows and events, as well as rehearsing in the studio just about everyday since their formation, working day and night, literally, on new material. Together the band has created an updated sound, bringing a more aggressive/yet epic sound, irresistible guitar hooks, and creative songwriting by marrying inspiration from some of their influences. (Coheed and Cambria, Muse, Pink Floyd, Mumford and Sons,)They've deemed the direction of their music as epic. (Funk, Alternative, Soul, Progressive, and Pop Rock ) The trio has discussed and decided that being they have evolved from the hardrock/juggernaut TANADRA that it would be only fair that the band have a name that suited the trio as a whole. They've adopted the name SanzEnd. Don't worry TANADRA will be stick be rocking the waves. Tanya has decided to take TANADRA on the level of collaboration. Making music with the talented indie artist from around the world. "I have so much more of an appreciation now for the international musicians and their interpretations of the different genres of music. We’ve taken everything we can do and stretched it in both directions,” Tanya says. “This new upcoming record goes from one song that’s just vocal and melodies that are the lowest and softest I’ve ever sung all the way up to the highest notes I’ve ever done.”
"The three of us are working together more now, so we’re really gelling better than ever. We’re really excited with how far we’ve gotten with this new music, and we can’t wait to see where we can go in the future. It feels like there are no rules or boundaries, and that’s the ultimate freedom." We've already put together a 5 song demo on our SanzEnd facebook page and have played quite a few live shows and have already been talked about as our sound has such a unique and EPIC feel. [+]
