Tigercub Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Evolve Or Die is the debut EP from Brighton trio Tigercub. The band mark this EP as the end of an era, hence the title. They want to keep moving on, keep fans guessing how their next record will sound. For now, we’re here and this EP was produced by Alex Newport. He has worked with the likes of At The Drive In, Bloc Party and Pissed Jeans. This is probably your biggest clue to their sound: Raucous yet sharp and tight all at the same time.

Tigercub is a hard-hitting grunge outfit from Brighton. After teasing with three 2016 single releases, Abstract Figures In The Dark is the trio's promising debut LP, which is packed full of fuzzy riffs, relentless drums and poppy hits. Much of the record's impact lies in the well-executed recording and production, which gives a raw, powerful, and animalistic feel to the music. Released as Vinyl LP and CD on the Alcopop label.
Tigercub are a Brighton trio devoted to heavy, kind of sleazy rock, with lashings of blues influences. Indeed, at times this record could be mistaken for some Queens Of The Stone Age. The Repressed Semantics EP is released on Venn Records, packaged in a sleeve with a great image of a bin on fire in Germany.
Double A-side single here from Tigercub, nicely titled Destroy / You. Tightly chugging grunge (or ‘Post-Grunge’?) fills both sides, expressing a simmering angst through the time-honoured tradition of drawled / snarled vocals and guitar heaviness. Released as a 7” single, in a limited edition, on the Too Pure label.
Brighton trio Tigerclub have a new single, ‘Centrefold’, which follows on from the success of ‘Blue Blood’ earlier this year. Limited to 500 vinyl copies, it is the first release on fellow Brightoners Blood Red Shoes’ brand new label Jazz Life.
They are 90s revivalist grunge copyists and the singer sounds like a mixture of Kurt Cobain and that guy from Stereophonics.
