Tigercub’s new single ‘Pictures of You’ from the upcoming ‘Repressed Semantics’ is something of a Punk-psychedelic-Grunge-dark-Blues-Rock kinda track. Stick with this; broadly speaking it’s Rock, but this Brighton trio’s more tricksy than a seaside carnival salesman.
After lulling you into a false sense of security with a darkly melodic Jeff Buckley like vocal and guitar line, the track takes your complacency and fires a guitar driven grunge-grenade into it. Then before your heart-rate and ears have a hope of adjusting, the grind drops out to be replaced by smooth vocals and drums so capable of holding not only a beat but the whole track that it becomes almost Trip-Hop like.
