Space Tan: “Continental”

Posted by on Feb 21, 2020

For some that caught last week’s post on Poly Action, the thought of, “I’m pretty sure I’ve seen those guys elsewhere…but not under that name” probably crossed more than a few minds, and they’re not wrong.

Unlike their Late Cretaceous counterpart, the band formerly known as Crocodile went through their evolution relatively quickly, shedding their scales to adopt the Ooni mantle for a little while, ultimately settling on Space Tan after Ooni was deemed too similar-sounding to local punk outfit Ume. Poly Action chief Ray Garza and guitarist Gianni Sarmiento swapped out roles for Space Tan, with Sarmiento now radiating front and center of this rock five-piece, who makes their debut under the new name today.

Don’t Worry About MeĀ is out now, but before you head to the record release show tonight at Cheer Up Charlie’s along with Marmalakes, bring it back down from the intergalactic and into the earthen with the third track off the new album, “Continental”!
