Tamala Park Book Club Talks of Debut EP, Album, Singles, and More!


Rock band TAMALA PARK BOOK CLUB have an EP, singles, with newer singles releasing til the release of the end of the year, where their debut album will be released. The band plays shows, with possibly touring, with them just wanting to grow and expand as much as they can. Find out just what else was talked about all below.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Tamala Park Book Club was launched in 2018 when we released our debut EP ‘Colour Your World’. The band consists of Marcel Bluett on drums, Daniel Harvey on guitar and Craig Roger and Patrick de Rooy sharing guitar and bass duties, with all members providing vocals. Having many vocalists in the band allows us to play different styles of music that we enjoy and allows for greater creative scope. Since the start, we have released many singles, and 2024 will see us release our debut album.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Craig and Patrick came up with the band name by bouncing ideas off each other. They both liked the idea of a ‘Book Club’ and had a few variations between settling on ‘Tamala Park’, a local rubbish dump. The name is an inside joke about how us blending our diverse influences together sounds like trash, and it’s stuck ever since. 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Tamala Park Book Club are proud to call Perth, Western Australia home. Being a geographically isolated city, Perth is bursting with talent across all genres, and we’re thrilled to be part of it. Some local acts we enjoy listening to include alternative singer-songwriter RinRin, metalcore heavyweights Patient Sixty-Seven, pop punk lads ColourMind and indie rockers Scream Mountain. Local rehearsal studio the Hen House have a solid playlist of Perth talent on Spotify called ‘Hella Hen Homies’ which perfectly showcases the Perth music scene.

4. How would you describe your style?

Rock. It’s broad enough for us to cover most of what we do. The music we make reflects the music we like, and our songs genre jump from pop punk to indie rock, emo to post-hardcore. Our sound is upbeat and mellow, heavy and soft, fast and slow. We believe we have something for every listener.  

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

An EP and several singles so far. Listening to our music, you’ll experience soaring vocal harmonies, face-melting guitar solos and a few breakdowns thrown into the mix.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Right now, we’re releasing a steady stream of singles as we get closer to our debut album scheduled for the end of 2024.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We play shows around Perth as often as we can. We’re exploring the possibility of touring the east coast of Australia. Unfortunately, Perth has been plagued by the closure of many venues in recent times, making it harder to play shows – but we persist!

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Growing as much as we can. Whilst music is a hobby for us all, we all have day jobs. We’d like to reach a point where we can do music full time but life changes over time. We’ll keep going as long as we can and as long as we still enjoy it.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

All major streaming platforms, thanks to Distrokid. There are several music videos on YouTube. We do have merch available from social media.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

We hope that the first listen makes them come back for more! Hearing a good song for the first time stays with you; that song becomes a memory of a time in your life. We’re aware that some people feel that way about some of our songs and we are ecstatic – we hope more people come to enjoy more of our music.
