Tigercats come through with their third LP, and first for new label El Segell De Primavera (Primavera Sound). Though born of frustration with the incessant march of gentrification in their native East London, Pig City channels this fury with righteousness. Afrobeat, psych-rock, indie-rock and Gang Gang Dance-esque globalist pop are all tossed into the pot. Tracks like ‘Perfect Fried Chicken’ bring to mind some sort of collaboration between Ebo Taylor and Kurt Vile.
Tigercats are a party band comprised of singer/guitarist Duncan Barrett, his brother Giles on bass, Laura Kovic on keyboards and vocals, Jonny Evans on drums and Paul Rains (Allo Darlin’) on guitar. ‘Sleeping In The Backseat’ is a lovingly crafted, record of sophisticated pop songs with contagious hooks and danceable rhythms, executed with a great abundance of personality and style.
From the first chords, you know this is a scrumptious indierock treat. 2012’s Isle of Dogs is finally reissued on vinyl for everybody who missed the boat the first time, right as Tigercats’ second album (Mysteries) is released. What convenient timing for all you fans of lighthearted and honest indiepoprock in all its distorted catchiness!
After a bit of touring about, East London band Tigercats return with Mysteries, a gentle, breezy and woozy selection of indiepop with some cute instrumentation and a great combination of vocal melodies from vocalists, Duncan Barrett and Laura Kovic which conjure the names of fellow indies We Were Evergreen and Cloud Control as fitting comparisons. The perfect soundtrack to stirring a steaming mug of tea from the warmth of the kitchen whilst looking out over the frost-white landscape.
