Track Of The Day: Tigercats – ‘Candy’s Tailor’

Three years since the release of the critically-acclaimed Mysteries, Tigercats have returned with their much-anticipated third album Pig City.

Taken from the album is latest single ‘Candy’s Tailor’. Filled with twinkling, jangly melodies and uptempo, calypso-like beats, it flows with raw vocals and rich layers of sound, creating an utterly uplifting summer anthem.

Inspired by the band’s anger at the incessant gentrification of East London as developers close in on the studio they call home, Pig City offers a broadening of the band’s pop influences, expanding into highlife, afrobeat, and scuzzy West African psych.

 

Pig City is out now via Spanish label El Segell del Primavera. Catch Tigercats live at the following dates:

3rd June – Primavera Festival, Barcelona
23rd June – Not A Cult Festival, Malvern
29th July – Indietracks Festival, Derbyshire
