Sacramento News & Review previews Tomten show

Tomten are in Davis tonight at Sophia’s Thai Kitchen – Sacramento News & Review picks the show as one of the best of the week:

The Pacific Northwest is buzzing over Tomten, a still decently under-the-radar trio based in Seattle. With serious praise from public radio station KEXP, expect the band to move past playing cheap shows on small restaurant patios in the future. And obviously, act now. Tomten’s brand of baroque pop is playful and charming, arranged on dreamy organ, analogue synth and fuzzy guitar. You hear the ’60s Britpop influence, as well as singer-keyboardist Brian Noyeswatkins’ upbringing in sunny, ocean-breezed Carmel. Airy sweetness gets a little more psychedelic heft with Tomten’s latest work, along with achingly beautiful strings.
