‘Grunge’ was a funny thing. More of a scene than a genre really, and not even much of that. A scramble by major labels to sign $$$ bands from a random city in the Pacific North West. Objectively Alice in Chains and The Screaming Trees are hugely dissimilar. There is a fairly unspoken of rift in that era between the bands that just wanted to be Led Zep/Neil Young and the ones who were more into the 80s hardcore or the Pixies thing.

Tigercub – very wisely – have chosen the latter path. That of The Sonic Youth, Mudhoney and of course that modestly successful Nirvana band. All big riffs, great melodies and emotional impact – remember when bands meant something and spoke from the heart? Us neither but they must have done at some point.

If you have even a faintest interest in the Brighton music scene you cannot fail to have noticed the impact Tigercub have had and that is just going to snowball into something greater.  They’ve been touring up and down the country payin’ their dues so now is the time for some pay-off.

New single Blue Blood is being launched on April 24th at Bermuda Triangle and might well be their best yet. A tension filled quiet/loud bite of perfect noise pop. Lairy but sensitive, harsh yet fragile. A tantalising taste of a debut album?

We do hope so. No support announced yet. Watch this space…
