JUNE 19, 2017 – TIGERS JAW recently stopped by the Washington, D.C. offices of NPR to perform a stripped down Tiny Desk Concert. NPR’s Lars Gotrich commented of Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins’ performance stating, “It’s a strikingly intimate format that illuminates their close harmonies that tangle like garlands.” Watch TIGERS JAW’s Tiny Desk Concert now on NPR.
Earlier this month TIGERS JAW released the official music video for “June,” which is featured on the band’s celebrated new LP spin, out now on Black Cement Records. The Ben Carey directed video is streaming now on TIGERS JAW’s official YouTube channel.
Recorded with producer and longtime collaborator Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA, spin arrived to critical acclaim last month with The Fader declaring, “…the duo sounds fresh, honest, and self-aware.” NPR’s All Songs Considered applauded TIGERS JAW’s new material declaring the duo, “…thoughtful songwriters mining the sorrows of pop, particularly the thematic and sonic tumult of Fleetwood Mac,” while Pitchfork attested, “…Tigers Jaw remain above the fray but true to their roots.” Stereogum praised TIGERS JAW for, “…balancing the damp garage-rock of Pity Sex with the big, catchy sensibilities of early Paramore,” and UPROXX hailed spin as, “…an album that sounds bigger and more lush than anything the band had done previously.” spin is available at all DSPs with limited edition vinyl available at www.tigersjaw.com.
TIGERS JAW is currently traversing the U.S. on a headline tour in support of spin with special guests Saintseneca and Smidley. Dates continue through June 24th where the tour wraps up with a performance at Royale in Boston, MA. For tickets and more information visit, www.tigersjaw.com.
Comprised of Ben Walsh and Brianna Collins, TIGERS JAW has gripped listeners and press across the globe with their candid compositions and alluring harmonies. spin (stylized all lowercase) sees Walsh and Collins trading off lead vocals which glow with sincerity on this collection of incredibly understated indie-pop classics. Tracks such as “Guardian,” “June,” and “Escape Plan” shine on spin, which follows TIGERS JAW’s 2014 critically adored LP, Charmer. “…The sound of a band bravely moving forward,” declared Pitchfork while Stereogum applauded Walsh and Collins’, “…soul-baring lyrical honesty,” adding, “TIGERS JAW are a revelation…” Profoundly personal and vibrantly textured, spin exhibits Walsh and Collins’ remarkable ability to capture the sentiments and complexities of a moment through melody and introspection.
