The Tiger and Me

Melbourne five-piece The Tiger and Me’s gypsy folk is a wink and a nod to the cabaret dens of old, complete with seductive accordion, sultry violin, high heels and trilbies – a rollicking good time.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Tiger & Me create indie-pop music as seen through the looking glass of European folk songs. Three lead vocalists lead a troupe of multi-instrumentalists from gentle folk melodies through to riotous frenzied waltzes, with a wink and a nod to the old cabaret den and speakeasy tradition. The Melbourne sextet ignites the stage with a live show that is an event for any rampant feet out there looking for the ultimate place to whirl and stomp.

_________

The Tiger and Me began life as a duo when Ade Vincent and Jane Hendry recorded six songs in late 2007 which, originally intended as demos, were released as an EP after friends in the industry declared the recordings to be worthy of release. The self-titled EP received strong support from radio in Australia, including leading station Triple J, which interviewed the duo and broadcast several of their songs. They were also featured as one of ‘six of the best’ unearthed roots bands in Australia in Triple J's 'Jmag'.

While they've since moved on to become the genre-busting sextet they are in 2010, the EP remains a strong seller and a worthy release in its own right. Featuring hints of cabaret, folk, country, electronica and looping, The Tiger & Me EP provides a glimpse into the origins of the beast it has since become.

Creative CD combining folk and country elements
This folk/country acoustic duo “The Tiger and Me” has compiled a creative album while utilizing simplistic instruments with this self-titled CD. The vocals are sung with pure and simple qualities with velvety harmonies bringing together the collection of songs on the album. “Alleyway” is bluesy, with a slow, easy moving drum beat. As a variation in instruments, take note how the electric piano changes to acoustic piano throughout this song. As a change of tempo “Forsaken Few” has a nice country swing while the lyrics tells an interesting story. Split lead vocals on the verses showcase how these impressive lyrics are interpreted. A round effect is heard when a vocal drum beat starts. A chanting, low, walking bass line begins the cut “The Elephant.” It is a well produced track as each part can be heard separately while fusing together with syncopated harmonies and rhythms. If you like a little folk music entwined with a little country beat you will not be disappointed when you hear the album “The Tiger and Me.”
