Described as “artistic and inventive” and “gorgeous,” animated experimental music videos created by Tulipomania have been featured in film festivals worldwide.
Music by 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.
