'The new rock - bittersweet and low' proclaimed a Time magazine cover in 1971, heralding the arrival of a new wave of acoustic-based music centred on the likes of Crosby, Stills and Nash and James Taylor. New Zealand had its own version of this soft revolution, epitomised by the debut of Wellington trio Tamburlaine. Nick Bollinger discusses their album Say No More with its sophisticated original songs, rich harmonies and tinge of psychedelia.
