Described as “artistic and inventive" and "gorgeous," music videos created by Tulipomania have been featured in film festivals worldwide, including the London Short Film Festival (England), Leeds International Film Festival (England), Aesthetica Short Film Festival (York, England), Encounters (Bristol,England), Zubroffka (Poland), and StopTrik (Croatia, Poland).
Tulipomania has alternately been categorized as ‘cult synth punks’, ‘glam-leaning’, ‘postpunk’, ‘art-rock’, and ‘muscular chamber pop’. While band members Tom Murray (lead vocals, bass, drums) and Cheryl Gelover (synthesizer, background vocals) enjoy deciphering efforts to categorizetheir sound, they decline to offer a specific label of their own.
The two first met in Art school, and found themselves collaborating on projects for Experimental Film and Animation classes–Tulipomania grew along with those experiences.
Recently, the pair were honored to work with the legendary designer Vaughan Oliver to create animated collages, which were included in projections for seven screens for Pixies' performances of the 30th anniversary of Come on Pilgrim/Surfer Rosa. The performances originated at the Roundhouse in London, then traveled to the Teatro Metropólitan in Mexico City, and Brooklyn Steel in NYC.
