Over three years since the release of the critically- acclaimed ‘Mysteries’, East London’s Tigercats return with their long-awaited and much- anticipated follow-up, ‘Pig City’, a record that builds both musically and lyrically on their work to date.
Almost completely self-recorded and produced by bassist Giles, ‘Pig City’ hears a broadening of the band’s indie pop influences, expanding into highlife, afrobeat and scuzzy West African psych. While sonically more aggressive, ‘Pig City’ is also the sound of a band increasingly political with a lyrical ferocity not so often heard – a direct result of the anger felt as the incessant gentrification of East London creeps ever closer to the studio in which the record was made.
Tigercats’ third record and first with Barcelona label El Segell del Primavera, ‘Pig City’ is the sound of a band unafraid of changing a winning formula, with the results fierce, bold and powerful.
