In the Post #33: Tigers That Talked

By on Tuesday, 27th October 2009 at 12:00 pm

Being named a ‘New Favourite Band’ by Steve Lamacq is a big deal. And the distinction was just bestowed (on Lamacq’s 6music programme on 21 October) on Leeds-based Tigers That Talked. If you were wondering, the band’s name is a literary reference to the villains of In Watermelon Sugar, an obscure book from the late 1960s by American author Richard Brautigan.

TTT’s singer/guitarist Jamie Williams says their latest single, ‘Artificial Clouds’, was written about a personal experience in losing a connection with someone after a death of a loved one. And you can hear this in Williams’s yearning voice, combined with the emotional violin playing of Glenna Larsen and the rhythm section of bassist Owain Kelly and drummer Chris Verney. Atmospheric, compelling stuff.

And if you like artsy videos, I think you’re going to like the promo vid for this song as well.


Tigers That Talked’s single for ‘Artificial Clouds’ was released on 19 October in the UK by Bad Sneaker Records.
