NEWS: Tigercub announce new album ‘As Blue As Indigo’
After much anticipation, Brighton-based Tigercub have announced the details of their upcoming album ‘As Blue As Indigo’.
Due for release on April 18, the album has been described as being “sparked by colour theory and the notion that what each human eye sees as colour could be totally subjective” – a concept that resulted in front man and songwriter Jamie Stephen Hall addressing his own issues in a similar way.
The result is a deeply personal album that touches on global issues such as anxiety, depression and toxic masculinity, as well as more specific pain caused by the recent death of loved ones.
This new approach to songwriting has allowed him to touch on topics that have been previously out of reach:
“I never really felt in the past that I could talk about really personal things. I’d always used a mask. It’s quite easy to do that because you’re not exposing yourself in anyway. I’d always subconsciously tried to shy away from talking about myself,” he notes. “I didn’t want to do that anymore. I wanted this to be about me and process my emotions for the first time. I think that’s made us more genuine and authentic as a band”
Sonically, we can expect a range of sounds, from “progressive to the immediate, the gentle to the monolithic”, the second taste of which can be found in the newly released single ‘Stop Beating On My Heart (Like a Bass Drum)’ – a perfect example of the band’s ability to expertly execute a steady build up to the greatest of heights.
If this – and the album’s first single ‘Beauty’ – are anything to go by, this ten-track record isn’t one you want to miss.
