Format: 7″ pink translucent vinyl
Side A: Here’s a short sharp shock of throbbing guitars and bashing drums from Tigercub. Reminding me a little of Weezer but with less student-alluring angst and more pop punk sensibilities. A beautifully crafted melange of soaring guitars and hard but never aggressive vocals. A perfect slice of 7″ single nirvana for lovers of tightly produced indie rock.
Side B: Slightly more edge, grunge and industrial tones infuse this infectious track. Here is a band who clearly understand how to build a song using complementary instrumentation, soaring to dirty murky heights but never overwhelming the listener with too much noise. There’s a bit if Depeche Mode going on, but with ferocious guitars.
Thought: A whole heap of grungy guitars that leave a smile on your face and big thoughts in your mind.
