All out warfare.
Label: Alcopop! Records
Released: 29th September 2017
There’s a frantic and urgent energy that screams from Tigercub's latest EP, ‘Evolve Or Die’. From the moment ‘Divided States Of Us' slowly eases in with a static heartbeat, soon joined by singer Jamie's soft vocals, it's all out warfare.
Throughout the four-track offering every moment counts, adding up to a journey that feels fleeting but necessary. New depths are explored with ‘Into The Ashes' conjuring imagery of dystopian-type fallout, while ‘It's Only Love' begins as a melancholic number, but soon morphs into a different beast entirely, with a funk-driven heart.
Closer ‘Faking Laughter' brings an amalgamation of all that came before it. Filled with dream-like flurries, a driving bassline, and drums that keep it all tied nicely together, every second yields either complete devotion or self-realisation. Steven Loftin
Give all this a try
The Murder Capital are a band that arrived with expectation. Before their first track dropped, word of mouth had already begun to spread about five men from Dublin kicking up a fuss.
Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
It’s over eight years since Friendly Fires released their last album, but - after a prolonged period away - they’re finally
back on the dancefloor with the shimmering ‘Inflorescent’.
His new album isn't too far off, either.
