Tigertown - Witches & Lions

Tigertown – Witches & Lions

Sydney six piece Tigertown are heading back on the road, bringing their enchanting blend of folk pop to a venue near you soon. Having already built on the successes of last year that saw Tigertown support the likes of Matt Corby & Emma Louise the band look set to make 2012 a year to remember.

Armed with a new management team in the form of Rowan Brand and Catherine Haridy (Eskimo Joe) and publicity from Mucho Bravado the band have just released a stunning new single Witches & Lions with a follow up EP scheduled for release imminently.

To celebrate these activities Tigertown are embarking on the ‘Age of Winter’ tour delivering their compelling live shows, full of magical harmonies and heartfelt lyrics to a string of cosy venues up and down the East coast. Witches & Lions is a strong return to scene and a signifier of what we can expect form the EP.

I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the band play live a few times, not forgetting the live set they played for us on Bondi FM, and they never disappoint. Sydneysiders should come along to the Hibernian House on 21st June for a magical musical experience that will not be forgotten.

Full tour dates below the Witches & Lions clip:

  • Sunday 10th June – The Queen’s Wharf, Newcastle
  • Thursday 14th June – Ed Castle, Adelaide
  • Saturday 16th June – Pure Pop Records, St Kilda
  • Sunday 17th June – The Workers Club, Melbourne
  • Thursday 21st June – Hibernian House, Sydney
  • Sunday 1st July – Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane

It’s fair to say TiGERTOWN have had a busy few months since the release of their latest single Go Now. So I was pretty excited when they answered the call to come into Bondi to play a few tracks for us on the Walk of Shame.

The six piece who hail from the desserts of western New South Wales have recently played alongside Husky, Emma Louise & Charlie Mayfair. The immediate future looks just as busy with a host of gigs ahead with Matt Corby, Set Sail and Calling all Cars. Early birds may have even seen them play on Sunrise this weekend as part of the Oz Jam sessions they’re running

Tigertown have been playing together for less than a year but have already amassed a steady live following and picked up many a blog post for their rich melodic tunes and soundscapes woven through the sands of time with tales of honesty and friendship. Their songs evoke an infectious warmth from their genuine love of life. There’s complexity among the layers of melodies and percussion, and honesty within the lyrics, but what shines through strongest is that warmth. In a live environment their music takes on another level as the energy rises and the two families, the six friends, take you on the journey to Tigertown.

Talking openly on the show, the guys shared their thoughts on the pro’s & con’s of being self managed, the plans for the next year and the curious way in the band was formed. It started when family members Charlie, Kurt, Crystal took to the road as their families toured the pubs & clubs of small town Australia. The remaining three joined the gang when Charlie met Chris, a young musician with a rich musical history. This marriage formed the start of Tigertown.

Sydney folk can see Tigertown perform this Thursday 24th November at the Oxford Arts Factory, or head over to the unearthed site for a list of upcoming shows. Below is a little snippet of what you’ll hear recorded live on for the Walk of Shame this weekend on Bondi FM.
