In the Post #11: Tigers that Talked

The latest hot export of Leeds, the intriguingly named Tigers that Talked are about to release their Black Heart, Blue Eyes EP. Having had their debut single featured on the likes of Steve Lamacq, Colin Murray and Zane Lowe, things are looking good for them.

Mixing the likes of Arcade Fire, Sigur Ros and The Cure together, they come out with a sound that is distinctly English yet still unique and fun. Slightly ramshackle, slightly chaotic, they manage to put four tracks into the 15 minute EP and a lot of quality.

Lead vocalist James’ voice is decidedly fragile – it always sounds like he’s about to crack with emotion, whilst Glenna’s violins place an element of classicalness to it, making them feel like a band that have been around since-goodness-knows-when. Together with Owain and Chris, the music is vibrant, multi layered and so textured, it’s like a calorie full triple chocolate desert.

If they can keep this up for the full length of an album, surely they’ll have bloggers the world over getting pant-wettingly excited.

Have a listen to the first track off of the EP below.
