Don’t let the sparseness of the traditional guitar, bass, and drum kit set-up catch you off guard: Dame Fate is a trio prepared to impress and captivate listeners unaware. Time and Tide Wait For No Man, Dame Fate’s debut full-length, is an exercise in deceptive simplicity and shimmering beauty. The group features a member of renowned pop group Tuscadero and has been described as a blend of Chrissie Hynde, Mazzy Star, and My Bloody Valentine. Hailing from Washington, D.C., the three women weave rumbling bass lines with ethereal guitar flourishes to produce an album whose solid pop core is overlaid with hints of melancholy and wistfulness.
