The London based alternative/indie rock trio Desert Mountain Tribe will release their second album on
1st June. ‘Om Parvat Mystery’ is co-produced by the band with James Aparicio and was recorded in
London and the Faroe Islands. Najma Akhtar, the well known British singer of Indian ancestry who
has previously collaborated with the likes of Page & Plant and Jah Wobble as well as making several
acclaimed solo albums in her own right, features on two songs.
Describing the new album, DMT say : “We’re very proud of this new record. It definitely shows a
progression from our personal tastes in music and style of playing. We didn’t consciously make an
effort to sound different from the first album but it felt like a natural development to a more
Bassist Philipp Jahn adds : “Personally the album also feels very important as it is a transition for the
band in terms of personnel as it is our last record featuring Felix while at the same time introducing
Frank.” Philipp’s brother Felix left the group in autumn 2017 and was replaced by Frank van der Ploeg.
The first single from the new album is ‘Wide Eyes’. Released on 2nd March, it has already had plays on BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio and other stations. A launch event for ‘Om Parvat Mystery’ will take place in London at The Lexington on 30th May.
