Tigercub + Weirds

In a world where we can often feel like everything is spiralling out of control, is there any wonder that bands like Tigercub are emerging, pissed-off and confused, from the remnants of our ex-industrial towns? There’s a twenty-first-century anxiety that feels sewn into the very fabric of the band’s output, mostly discordant and harsh, but in places peppered with a wailing weirdness that’s perhaps most evident on tracks like ‘The Golden Ratio’ which stray into psych territory. Perhaps not surprisingly, Tigercub lean towards the darker side, a grim and twisted wreckage of the upbeat, pop-rock psychedelia that’s been so fashionable of late, a dark and disturbing reflection of the broken surroundings which have spawned them. – Drowned in Sound
