Luckily for us and South African music, things are changing rather rapidly for the better. In our post on things down the line in 2k9 i spoke about some of the local artists that Fatchineseboi thought were doing things rather well... but there was a small problem with that list. See that list didn't feature the likes of Tigerstrike.
Now I've just recently woken up to Tigerstrike's music, through an old friend Brett... and well facebrick. Now you may think I'm just pluggin' an old mates band... Thats definatley not the case here... and really when you look at theses guys backgrounds its quite convincing that they've got a bit of experience behind em...
Some say they bonded over a shared love for Wild Life specials on Animal Planet... but I have a feeling its more to do with a shared love for creating great music and old Vietnam Movies....
Tigerstrike were kind enough to send us some really great tracks, hot outta the studio. I'm really into their track "Disappear", technically its brilliant, but it's the hook and eerie synth in the breakdown that keeps this track firmly in my daily playlist. 'ave a listen.
So really, there's not much more I need to say about these guys, their music speaks for itself. I for one am really looking forward to hearing more from Tigerstrike in the future and feel relieved that there is a movement in our parts towards good and unique music.
Word from the band is that they are currently working on an EP. No name or definite release date yet, but we here at FatChineseboi will keep you up to speed.If you in or around that Caped City you can catch them live at Day Dream Nation and other events. Hopefully we'll see em performing in our dirty city in the not so distant future.
Go on down to their Myspace and facebrick pages to show them some love...Expect an Interview soon
