Critically acclaimed Tigercats share new kalimba-led psychedelic pop track ahead of the release of their new album ‘Pig City’

Three years since the release of the critically-acclaimed album ‘Mysteries’, Tigercats return with their long-awaited and much-anticipated follow-up, ‘Pig City’, released 4th May. The band’s third record, and first with Barcelona label El Segell del Primavera, the album is the sound of a band very much in their prime – with the results fierce, bold and powerful.

The band are pleased to share ‘Perfect Fried Chicken’, the first track to be taken from the album, a kalimba-led psychedelic pop track which you can stream here

‘Pig City’ sees the band grow into a kalimba-led psychedelic pop septet, developing both musically and lyrically. Almost completely self-recorded and produced by bassist Giles Barrett, ‘Pig City’ hears a broadening of the band’s pop influences, expanding into highlife, afrobeat, and scuzzy West African psych. Sonically more aggressive, ‘Pig City’ is the sound of a band directing their anger at the incessant gentrification of East London as developers close in on the studio they call home

‘PIG CITY’

NEW ALBUM RELEASED 4TH MAY VIA EL SEGELL DEL PRIMAVERA

Having honed his songwriting craft in the short-lived but much much-missed Esiotrot, in 2010, Duncan Barrett went about forming a new band and recruited sibling/long-time producer Giles Barrett (bass) and talented songstress Laura Kovic (keys). The years have seen a gradual evolution of line-ups, and they are now joined by Will Connor (drums), as well as Paul Rains (guitar, of Allo Darlin’ fame), Thom Punton (trumpet) and Seb Silas (saxophone).

 

The band have performed throughout the UK and Europe, have toured the USA and Canada and have supported The Wave Pictures, Allo Darlin’, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Darren Hayman (Hefner) amongst others. They have also performed at the End of the Road, NYC Popfest, Indietracks and Primavera Festivals, have appeared on Spanish TV (RTVE Radio3) and have recorded sessions for John Kennedy at XFM.
