TIGERTOWN EXPLORE THE RIFT BETWEEN DREAMS AND REALITY IN NEW “WARRIORS” VIDEO
“They are already aware of their full potential and that not even
the sky is the limit.”
“The free-wheeling attitude that a young band with the world
at their feet should have.”
“Sounds like triumphant glitter cannons at the sunset slot
of a summer festival.”
Rolling Stone AU
“Brimming with bold, bright and shimmering sounds and
serotonin-fuelled optimism worthy of Grouplove, Passion Pit
and Foster The People.”
“There’s no telling just how far Tigertown could go…”
“Tigertown are producing some of the most twinkling,
triumphant pop music in the country right now.”
“Pensive pop marvel.”
Australia’s alt-pop favourites Tigertown unveil the video for their newest single “Warriors” via BlackBook Media, directed by Imogen Grist.
The clip juxtaposes slow, stunning dreamscapes with the warmly infectious, high-energy track. “Warriors” is the latest testament to Tigertown’s ability for creating pop that is all at once huge and triumphant, yet danceable and inviting, and is out now proudly on Inertia Music.
The video is a stellar accompaniment to the track, which explores the divide between fantasy and reality, carrying on themes of love and introspection which lie behind much of Tigertown’s lyricism. It follows the internal monologue of two people who experience an idealised love in their dreams, which they can never quite transfer into the actuality of everyday life.
“Warriors” embodies the foundation of pop’s tradition – turning emotion into art, pain into pleasure – taking the tribulations of the human condition and remoulding them into a glittering, celebratory audio spectacle – “I can’t shake the way I’m feeling / Coz I love you when I’m Dreaming”. The track was recently remixed by GLADES, in a club-ready reinterpretation best served with flashing lights and the unity of the dance floor.
Having just wrapped up a string of supports alongside Tove Lo for her sold-out Splendour in The Grass sideshows in July, Tigertown are currently in North America where they’ve joined forces with VÉRITÉ for her headline tour.
The new single and video carry on from the euphoric highs of Tigertown’s debut Lonely Cities EP in 2015 and it’s wildfire single of the same name (10 million streams and counting), and the release of 2016’s Papernote EP, which saw the title track remixed by BØRNS x Tommy Englishand The Knocks. The past 12 months has also seen them crystallise their unique anthemic sound on the stage, invited to embark on a series of huge support shows and tours by the likes of Troye Sivan, St. Lucia, Panic! At The Disco and MS MR, and release remixes for BØRNS, Troye Sivan, Group Love and Crystal Fighters.
