Tigercub are one of Brighton's best kept secrets.
The three-piece have long been considered a righteous DIY inspiration, taking risks and gleefully operating out-with the mainstream.
Working with Alcopop! Records, the trio will release new album 'Abstract Figures In The Dark' on November 11th.
The material is seemingly more direct and more personal than ever before, as Jamie Hall explains:
"After burying my emotions deep into obscure metaphors in past songs, I feel like it’s time to just f*cking come out and say it: Everything is not okay and it never was."
Produced by Alex Newport, the album is a powerful, visceral piece of work, simultaneously burrowing inwards, while continually reaching outwards.
New cut 'Burning Effigies' underlines this. The moments of darkness are interspersed with real clarity, with an anthemic feel that unites even when the lyrics shift towards the coruscating.
A superb, multi-layered return, you can tune in below.
