Premiere: TIGERTOWN – What You Came Here For

Tigertown are back with their new single ‘What You Came Here For’ and The Ripe is pumped to bring you an exclusive premiere before it’s officially released tomorrow.

The track pushes Tigertown’s signature sound of lush harmonies, dreamy instrumentation and melodic hooks.  A synth component takes the song in to an edgier domain, but it’s undeniable that the band have maintained a loyalty to their fusion of contemporary pop and alt-country influences. Sitting underneath ‘What You Came Here For’ is a great percussion track which drives a jumping (almost african/world music) styled beat. It all comes together to create a much more layered sound than what we’ve heard previously from the Sydney five-piece and it’s a pretty exciting taste of their forthcoming EP release.

I really love the approach that these guys take with their music. There seems to be real honesty to the way they write while the production is layered, yet maintains an organic folky kind of feel – overal it translates in to a loveable charm. Having recently toured the country with Bob Evans - the guys are set to hit the road again on their own headline tour to celebrate the release (dates below).

Dont Miss: You can watch our Ripe Live clip with Tiger Town performing their single ‘Morning Has Finally Come below.

RIPE LIVE WITH TIGER TOWN – Morning Has Finally Come

Tom lives and breathes new music. He co-created The Ripe with Huw Nolan to fuel his sick obsession for local culture and use his experience in digital media and public relations to propel new music in to the broad realms of the inter-webs. Apart from what you see here on The Ripe, Tom listens to a lot of jazz music (weird, we know) and is always searching for the next big thing. Tom is a bit of nerd, he built our website from his bedroom and takes care of content, digital media, advertising and business direction. He is enthusiastic and energetic guy, attributed to his love of coffee and is in a serious relationship with his Mac Book Pro.
